The Hudson Highlands Nature Museum plans to host its popular Owl Prowl on Feb. 5 and Feb. 6. Both begin at 7 p.m. at the Wildlife Education Center, 25 Boulevard, in Cornwall.

Environmental Educator Carl Heitmuller will discuss the species native to our region and their adaptations. Participants will meet an owl from the Museum’s collection before venturing into the woods to search for more of these nocturnal raptors.

Space is limited, so paid reservations are required. The program is suitable for children ages 7 and older. The cost is $7 per person for museum members and $10 for non-members. For more information and to register, visit hhnm.org or call 845-534-5506, ext. 204.
