Screecher program set for Oct. 17
As part of its Wow! Series for Kids, the Beacon Institute has invited Carl Heitmuller of the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum to share his knowledge of owls, such as the owl that makes a sound like a horse whinny and another that can eat a skunk.
“Screecher Feature” takes place at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 17 at the Institute gallery at 199 Main St. in Beacon. Heitmuller will bring along a live Eastern screech owl and discuss other owls that live nearby. Registration is available at bire.org.
