Owl Prowl: Guided Hike
8:00 PM
Flathead Lake State Park Big Arm Unit
Description:
Owl Prowl- an introduction to the nighttime silent hunters of the sky. Come learn what makes these birds of prey so special and see what owl species occupies Flathead Lake.
Fridays:
April 5: Big Arm Unit, Meet by the Entrance Station
12: West Shore Unit, Meet in the Boat Trailer Parking area
19: Wayfarers Unit, Meet at the Ranger Station


Owls are mostly known for their noisy whoo whoo call, in fact only a few owls in Montana have a variation of this call. Some have more of a whistle than an actual song or call. These amazingly silent and patient hunters of the night have some amazing adaptations that allow them to hunt with pinpoint precision. Come find out what lurks in the trees at the Flathead Lake State Park.
Each Hike is roughly 1 to 1.5 miles, please bring warm clothes, snacks, binoculars, and a flashlight or headlamp. These hikes are limited to 20 people and registration can be done by calling the Ranger Station at 406-837-3041 ext. 0.
The cost is $4 per participant, and free for kids 12 and under.
