What do owls eat? What are the best times and places to look for one? What’s the deal with those big eyes and flat face? Can I see one tonight?

These great questions and many more will be answered this Friday evening from 6 – 7:30 p.m. at Prescott Farm in Laconia. After a brief introduction, discussion, and question and answer session inside, Naturalist Jake Newcomb will lead the group on a guided outdoor mission to find our sometimes illusive friends, the owls. Because they are starting their mating season and are quite vocal and active, this is an ideal time of year to hear and spot owls.

Let’s Go “Owling!” is part of Prescott Farm’s Our Big Backyard series of programs. Specially designed for children ages 7-11 and their favorite grownups, the programs engage and inspire kids who are excited to explore and discover all the wonders of nature throughout the year. Program themes are seasonally dependent, allowing the environmental educators to frame their lessons around the weather and animal activity.

Registration for Our Big Backyard programs is $8 per person (non-members) and free for upgraded Prescott Farm members. For more information and to register for Let’s Go “Owling!”  go to prescottfarm.org or call 603-366-5695.

The 2019 Our Big Backyard series is made possible with the generous support of Prescott Farm’s business partner, Kennell Orthodontics.
