Whooo’s that? Spend an evening listening for owls at the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary

In the quiet stillness of night, owls are often easier heard than seen. For an evening next month, visitors to the W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary will try to do both.

An Owl Prowl will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13, at the Sanctuary’s auditorium and grounds. One of the Sanctuary’s ambassador owls will make an appearance to start the event, then attendees will take a nighttime walk along the trails to call for owls and listen for their responses.

Admission for members is $5 for adults, $4 for students and seniors, and $3 for children ages 2-17. For non-members, admission is $7 for adults, $6 for students or seniors, and $5 for children. No registration is required. 

The W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary is located at 12685 East C Ave., one mile north of M-89 and just west of 40th Street. To learn more, visit
