Nature Museum Comes to Philipstown With an Owl

June 7 presentation at Fahnestock’s Hubbard Lodge

On Sunday, June 7, from 2 to 3:30 p.m., the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum will present “Owls!” at Hubbard Lodge, 2880 Route 9 in Cold Spring. Hubbard Lodge is part of Fahnestock State Park; the sign for the entrance is on the east side of Route 9, just north of Route 301.

Families are invited to join environmental educator Carl Heitmuller to learn about owls, the silent hunters of the night. These raptors are successfully adapted for the nocturnal world. Heitmuller will bring artifacts and a live owl from the museum’s collection.

This program is recommended for adults with or without children ages 5 and up. Admission is $7 for adults, $5 for children. Museum members pay $5 for adults, $3 for children. Admission fees will help care for the museum’s animals at the Wildlife Education Center in Cornwall. For more information, visit or call 845-534-5506, ext. 204.
