Friends of Cedar, Mill & Wigle Creeks host their annual Winter Owl Prowl at Camp Cedarwin, on Thursday starting at 7pm.   This will be the of ERCA’s 40 events to celebrate 40 years of conservation.

Participants will learn about the owls of southwestern Ontario, their adaptations, physiology and more, presented by Caroline Biribauer, Friends of Watersheds Organizer with the Essex Region Conservation Authority (ERCA). Weather permitting, attendees will also walk through the woods of Camp Cedarwin on a guided hike, looking and listening for owls. Located in one of the few remaining Carolinian forests in Essex County, Camp Cedarwin includes 74 acres of beautiful woodlands. Combined with adjacent forest habitat, this area is a perfect spot to look for owls.

The cost of this event is $5 per person. Space is limited and those interested are asked to register by calling Caroline at 519-776-5209, ext. 245, or by emailing [email protected] .

Refreshments will be available for all participants and you are asked to dress according to the weather conditions.  Boots are also recommended.
