SPECIAL EVENT: Family Hootenanny- FULL

February 16 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10.00 – $35.00

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. You will select your walk group when you arrive at the Hootenanny. One walk is designed for families to look for owls while having fun with night hike activities, and one is designed for those who want to walk and seriously search for owls

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