Everyone loves owls! Yet, how many of us have ever seen a live owl up close? With Eyes On Owls, Naturalist Marcia Wilson and photographer Mark Wilson will introduce you to six different live owls from New England and far beyond. Some owls, like the Great Horned, Barred and Eastern Screech Owls are fairly common in our area. Others, like Snowy Owls, Great Grays, and Boreal Owls, are rather rare.
Eyes On Owls will share the field marks, signs and naturalist’s skills that you can use to see wild owls without disturbing them, while introducing you to six live owls up close. They will also share tips on how to protect owls near you.
Explore the world of owls with two talented naturalists and their six lively owls on a beautiful summer day at ifarm!
All attendees aged 3 and up require a ticket for this event.
This is a great event for families: Mark and Marcia love to bring up children as volunteers during the event.
Marcia and Mark Wilson founded Eyes On Owls in 1994 as an educational enterprise that brings wild owls to schools or groups to learn more about wild owls and their habitats.
The owls at Eyes On Owls are permanently disabled - that is they can't survive on their own in the wild. Many of the owls are survivors of collisions with vehicles. Eyes On Owls gives each owl a safe, clean, low stress home and all the mice they need to eat (owls don't eat plants, of course). Several times a week, Marcia and Mark bring a selection of owls to a school or group program to help people learn about these fascinating birds.
