FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN AGES 6 AND UP, AND ADULTS

Bring the family to Ijams Nature Center for a great time celebrating all things owl! Adults and kids alike will gain a deeper appreciation for these animals while having a “hoot” of their own. There will be owl games, owl pellets, owl meet-and-greets, owl walks, and even an owl call competition!

The Hootenanny begins at 6 p.m. with games, pellet dissections, and the signup for the owl call competition. Games shut down and the call competition begins at 6:45 p.m. Sign up in one of three age groups to give your best call, or just sit back and watch the fun. Each group will be judged by a panel of naturalists (don’t worry, they’re nice) and the winner receives a prize!

Once the call contest is finished we’ll meet some of the owls that live at Ijams. At 8 p.m. we’ll head out on the Ijams trails to listen for wild owls. Groups 1 and 2 are designed for families with children in elementary and middle school, and Group 3 is perfect for adults and older children who are focused on hiking and listening for owls. The ticket you purchase determines which group you are in, so please read the ticket title carefully and click on “show info” for more information about each group. Please bring a flashlight with you for the walk.

Sign up today to have a “hooting” good time at Ijams.
