Upcoming Events

Owl Prowl 

The sun will set at 7:01 p.m. on March 15, and shortly after, people will gather outside at the Sands Point Preserve, searching for owls – a bird that is solitary and nocturnal. With eyes that face forward, he has very precise depth perception. Combine that with excellent hearing, and you have an excellent nighttime hunter. The owl is a carnivore, and his prey is mostly rodents, insects, frogs, and birds. Lucky bird – he has no major predators…. but attendees will be his friendly stalkers! Free with Annual Pass or $10 per car.
