Wide-open coastal sites are the location of choice for wintering Snowy Owls; common perches are dunes and salt hay staddles. In winters past, these owls have been frequent visitors to the Crane Wildlife Refuge.
Join us for a family snowy owl prowl as we hike the dunes in search of these magnificent birds. As a family hike, this hike will be shorter and slower than our standard Snowy Owl Prowl, focusing on engaging children in the natural world. If you are an adult with no or older children who would prefer a more serene hiking experience, please check out or standard Snowy Owl Prowl events.
Because we will be looking for Snowy Owls, sometimes on distant dunes, please bring binoculars if you have them. We will not be able to provide loaner optical gear.
Family pricing is for one group of approximately 4 people. If you are bringing 6 or more, please purchase additional tickets.
