Event details

This hike will begin with a brief introduction to the owls of Will County and what makes them so exceptional. Then we’ll head out to explore the darkening trails as we quietly listen for these magical and elusive birds! While we listen for the owl serenade, we’ll also have the chance to hear the other creatures of the night.
