It’s Owl Prowl Weekend in the Starved Rock State Park area, and Starved Rock Lodge is the place to be from March 1-3.
Owl Night Walks (Friday night, Saturday night)
$10/adults, $7/children 10 and under
Steve Bailey, an ornithologist, will be at Starved Rock Lodge for a great educational program. The program starts at 6pm each night, followed by an Owl Walk that finishes at the Lodge around 8pm. Please dress appropriately and bring a flashlight.
During the program, Steve will have some owl specimens, feathers and pellets. He will be trying to call in a Screech, Barred and Great Horned Owls. Hopefully, the Owl Walk will result in seeing some nest or uncommon wintering owls.
