Explore the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary after hours and join us for a night of camping under the stars. Have an early dinner at home and then come with your family, your tent, and a dessert to share. Join us as we explore the habitats of the elusive owls.

We'll learn all about their adaptations, get a close-up view of owl mounts, and call for them on our private nighttime walk. When we return, we'll roast s'mores by the campfire and listen to the story, Owl Moon. In the morning, we'll hunt for owl pellets in the forest and learn what owls eat by dissecting one of the pellets we find. On our return, we will share breakfast together, and create an owl craft while the adults pack up.

Instructions and Directions:
