Owl Prowl and Campfire
Saturday, Jan. 27, 5:30 p.m.

Owls hooting, armadillos rustling in the underbrush, maybe a coyote howling…we never know what we might hear on a night hike on the trails at LLELA. Join our guides as they lead a stroll down the trail, listening for owls as we go. We’ll end our hike by warming up around a campfire, where we’ll make s’mores and sip hot chocolate. Registration is required by 11a.m. the day before the event.
