“Meet the Owls” Event April 29th 1pm & 3:30pm

The five (5) new owls who now reside on the nature center preserve are settled in their temporary location at the Stage Nature Center and are ready to meet the public. The public will get their first opportunity to meet all five (5) of the owls at the “Meet The Owls” event.

At this event, the public will learn fun facts about each of the owls, discover their personalities and hear each of their stories on how the ended up in captivity. There will also be a silent auction at the fundraiser, in which 100% of the proceeds will go back into the care of the owls.
