Night Hike & Owl Prowl

Wednesday, February 28, 2024 (7:00 PM - 8:00 PM) (CST)


January and February are active months for barred owls; this is when they begin looking for a partner. They use sound and body language to try to impress each other. You can learn more about owls by joining one of three Owl Prowls this month.

Owl Prowls will be from 7 to 8 PM on February 14, 21 & 28. A Des Moines County naturalist will give a short presentation about owls and their calls, then participants will head out for a 2-mile round trip night hike, using owl calls and hopefully hearing owls talk back! You may even get to see one swoop silently down for a closer look.

These programs are open to anyone, but since silent listening is required, children must be accompanied by an adult. Make sure to dress for the weather and prepare for a 2-mile hike in the dark. 

There is no fee to join this event, but registration is required, as space is limited. To register, contact Starr’s Cave Nature Center at (319)-753-5808. Upon registration, you will receive the location details for the Owl Prowl.
