Friday, February 21, 2020 - 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Search the darkened landscape for owls with special guest guide, Nate Fuller, (Owl Caller Extraordinaire and Executive Director of Sarett Nature Center), then warm up with cocoa and friends around a cozy bonfire.

The Owl Prowl part is pretty self-explanatory but what’s a hygge? According to Wikipedia, “In both Danish and Norwegian, hygge refers to ‘a form of everyday togetherness’, ‘a pleasant and highly valued everyday experience of safety, equality, personal wholeness and a spontaneous social flow’.” We think that nature is the perfect place to practice hygge and hope that you can join us!

   The hike will begin in the SWMLC staff parking lot (not the Chipman Preserve parking lot).

   Dress warmly in layers and wear comfortable, warm hiking shoes or boots.

   Please remember that there are no restrooms at Chipman Preserve.

   Although we will try to use artificial light as little as possible, we’re only human and it’s hard to see in the dark – so bring a pocket flashlight if you have one to help you navigate safely back to your car.

   Kids are welcome (let’s get those young folk into birding!) but must be able to remain quiet while looking for shy, easily disturbed birds.

   Please leave your four-legged friends at home for this event.
