Owls are remarkable predators that rarely reveal themselves to people. Stop by the Richmond Nature Park on Sunday, December 6 between 11am and 3pm. for a unique opportunity to see and learn about these secretive birds of prey. The Owl Show is presented by OWL – the Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society, an organization that rehabilitates injured or orphaned birds of prey. Most of the birds that OWL cares for are returned to the wild. Some birds with permanent injuries are chosen to be educational ambassadors for owls and their habitat. In addition to viewing live owls, you can learn about local research projects from a member of Environment Canada’s Urban Owl Conservation Project. By radio tracking owls, this project assesses habitat value, loss and the impact of contamination. Despite the challenges humans present to these birds, Richmond has a remarkably high owl population. For more information, please call 604-718-6188.

Admission is by donation. All proceeds support Richmond Nature Park Society educational programs.

This event is for all ages. The Richmond Nature Park is located at 11851 Westminster Highway, at No. 5 Road.

Disability access is available with designated parking spaces.
