Find out Whooos Out There at Oakland County (Mich.) Parks

Oakland County Parks and Recreation invites families to learn about owls and head out on the trails to see Whooos Out There, Dec. 11 from 8:30 – 10:30 p.m. at the Wint Nature Center of Independence Oaks County Park, located in the rural suburbs northwest of Detroit.

“This is a great educational opportunity for families to learn about owls, one of the most recognized groups of birds,” Recreation Program Supervisor Tim Nowicki said. “After some classroom fun and learning, we’ll head out into the park in hopes of seeing and hearing some owls.”

Using mounts and specimens of owls, parks staff will explore some of the special features of owls, their ranges, habits and food preferences. Indoor learning will be followed by an outdoor hike where staff and participants will look and listen for owls in nature.

Cost is $1/person. Suitable for school-age children and adults. Space is limited. Pre-registration and payment are required. To register, contact the nature center 248-625-6473. Wint Nature Center is located in Independence Oaks County Park at 9501 Sashabaw Road in Clarkston.
