Get Into Nature
Thursday, October 19th, 7:30pm-9pm. This program will be led by Dr. Glenn A. Proudfoot, Visiting Scholar at Vassar College and Mohonk Preserve Research Associate. For nearly 40 years Glenn has been studying birds of prey. His current research explores migratory pathways of the Northern Saw-whet Owl. With luck, participants will experience being up close and personal with these silent visitors. The program will include a presentation on Saw-whet Owl identification, behavior and life history. Children ages 12 and up are welcome. Children must always be accompanied by an adult. This is an indoor program. Space is limited. Reservations are required.
