Organizer: Western Wildlife Corridor
Description: Join us for a fun, educational evening with LIVE owls! We will start with a 45-60 minute presentation inside featuring 3-4 live native owl species. Up close and personal, you can see and learn about the adaptations which make owls supreme hunters of the night-time sky. The program will describe owl diets, habitats, nesting habits and their role in the food web, as well as other interesting topics. Artifacts (such as wings, feet, pellets, etc.) will be available for touching and raptor vocalizations will be played. An Owl Prowl will follow the presentation, where a RAPTOR Inc. educator will lead a hike along nearby trails and play owl vocalizations in an attempt to call in wild owls. We suggest bringing a flashlight for using during the hike. This event is free and families are welcome.
Registration: Required as seating is limited. Please go online to the WWC webpage to register.
How to get there: The Kirby Nature Center is located at 2 Main Street, Addyston Ohio 45001, just off River Road. To get there from north and east of Addyston, go west on Cleves Warsaw into Addyston, where the name changes to Main Street. Continue past South Road - there is a storage building on the corner on the right, then a stone wall with an opening for a driveway flanked by large stone pillars. Turn in the driveway - this is it!
If you are coming from the west or are close to Route 50, take 50 into Addyston and turn onto Dinning Lane, the small connector street opposite Ineos (the company on River Rd.) Go right on Main, go past First and Second Streets and continue up the hill then down the next slope. You will see the stone walls and opening with the large pillars on your left (this is it again). If you get to South Road, you just passed it.
