To keep the guided walks safe and enjoyable. they are scheduled in groups of 20 and are booked every 20 minutes starting at 6 p.m. You must make a reservation to go on the guided hike.

The owls and their keepers will be available from 6 to 8 p.m. each evening (this can be done before or after your guided hike). During the more formal presentation, visitors can approach the Wild Wing educators and not only learn about the animals but also be able to ask questions on a one-to-one level.
You can roast marshmallows around a campfire under the moonlit night sky and hear a reading of Jane Yolen’s beautiful nature story, the Caldecott Medal-winning Owl Moon (this can be done before or after your guided hike).
