POP UP ADVENTURE: Moon Owl Prowl
**CANCELED DUE TO RAIN**
ABOUT THE EVENT:
This walk is part of a series of walks that “pop up” on the calendar throughout the year. It gives members the opportunity to get out more and enjoy fresh air and friends.
Join us for an evening walk at the Urban Forestry Center in Portsmouth for a unique opportunity to listen for owls as dusk descends. We will walk the Brooks Trail, which is a 2 mile loop, mostly flat and wide trail with a 65 ft. elevation gain. The phase of the moon will be Waning Gibbous with an illumination of 53%.
Winter is the best time to hear the call of owls. Great horned owls and barred owls are some of the earliest nesting birds here in NH, laying eggs during the months of January through March in spite of cold temperatures and snow. Listening for their calls at night is a wonderful way to locate where they may be living in the surrounding forests.
PLEASE be prepared for a portion of the walk to be after sunset. Bring flashlights, headlamps, and appropriate footwear (boots and ice cleats, if needed) and clothing, as well as any items your dog may need for comfortable walking.
