Owls are remarkable predators that rarely reveal themselves to people. Stop by the Richmond Nature Park on Sunday, May 10 between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. for a unique opportunity to see and learn about these secretive predators.The Owl Show is presented by O.W.L. – the Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society, an organization that rehabilitates injured or orphaned birds of prey. Most of the birds that O.W.L. 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 pesticide contamination. Despite the challenges humans present to these birds, Richmond has a remarkably high owl population.
All ages are welcome. Admission is by donation. All proceeds support Richmond Nature Park Society educational programs. For more information, contact
