Owls - Soul of the Night Event

Owls - Soul of the Night Event scheduled at Sweet Arrow Lake.

Everyone loves the beauty, mystery and charm of owls, but science is still unlocking many of the secrets of owl biology and ecology. Join Scott Weidensaul, author of the new Peterson Reference Guide to Owls of North America and the Caribbean, for an exploration of the weird and little-known world of these nocturnal hunters, and the exciting new discoveries being made not only about weird tropical species like the stygian owl, but even the most common and widespread owls in American backyards. The program will take place Wednesday, January 20, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. in the Sweet Arrow Lake County Park clubhouse.

Scott Weidensaul is the author of more than two dozen books on natural history, including the Pulitzer Prize finalist "Living on the Wind," about bird migration, "Return to Wild America," and "The First Frontier: The Forgotten History of Struggle, Savagery and Endurance in Early America." His newest book, "The Peterson Reference Guide to Owls of North America and the Caribbean," has just been published. Weidensaul is a contributing editor for Audubon and a columnist for Bird Watcher's Digest, and writes for a variety of other publications. He lives in Schuylkill County where he studies the migration of owls and hummingbirds.

This program is free and open to the public. (Snow date Jan. 22nd) For more information call 570-345-8952.
