You have the chance to rub feathers with real live owls. The World Bird Sanctuary has kicked off a series of Owl Prowls where you can learn about the creatures that stretch their wings while you're sleeping.
"We take people into our nature center spend about 30 or 45 minutes with them teaching them about owls with our live owl program and then we walk on property outside at night and hoot and try and get wild owls to hoot back with us," explained Teri Graves, Director of Education World Bird Sanctuary.
Prowlers will learn about the owls that might be living in your backyard.
"It's pretty easy to walk past an owl and not even see it so the more aware you are, and they're pretty active this time of year because it's their breeding season, so the more aware you are and keeping your eye out on the trees at night if you see a big lump in a tree a dark a silhouette there's a good chance that it's an owl," said Graves.
Owl Prowls are going on now through March on select Friday and Saturday evenings, but the November prowls are already sold out. To make a reservation call 636-225-4390. For more information about dates and times visit www.worldbirdsanctuary.org. It costs $9 for adults and $7 for children under 12.
