Family Hootenanny at IJAMS
Join the staff at Ijams Nature Center for a “hootin'” good time, where we will be celebrating all things Owls! There will be Owl crafts, dissection of Owl pellets, meet and greets with our Owls, and even an Owl call competition.
Every hour we will leave for a night hike, to find some of our feathered friends in action. On each of our night hikes you will get a chance to learn from our naturalists just how amazing these birds really are! Once your group gets back from your night hike guests may join us at our small concession stand for hot cocoa and s’mores on the back patio.
When purchasing a ticket for this event, please sign up for the time you wish to go on your night hike. You are encouraged to get here early and stay after your alotted time, in order to enjoy all the festvities. We will be hosting the Owl call competition at 8:30pm, so if you would like to compete please be here 15 minutes prior. The winner of the Owl call competition will get serious bragging points, and maybe a small prize!
The fee for this program is $10/person and is suitable for ages 5 and up. Proceeds from this event will go to support the education department at Ijams Nature Center.
