Summer is winding down, and fall is just around the corner. Join the Tug Hill Tomorrow Land Trust (THTLT) as we go on the prowl for owls on Saturday, September 16th from 6:30 pm – 8 pm at the Joseph A. Blake Wildlife Sanctuary in Rutland.
Open year-round, the Wildlife Sanctuary is owned by the Land Trust and is home to a network of trails for hikers, mountain bikers and XC skiers. If we’re lucky, we may see an owl peering back at us, or hear it as it prepares for its nighttime hunt.
Before we begin the hike, a special guest from the New York State Zoo at Thompson Park will be joining us with a live owl friend. If you love birds and are looking for an excuse to get outside this is a fun opportunity. As always our hikes are free and open to the community.
Wear sturdy shoes, and bring a flashlight or headlamp. Snacks and extra water will be provided by Tug Hill Tomorrow Land Trust.
Plan to meet at 31269 Middle Road, in Rutland, NY. The Joseph A. Blake Wildlife Sanctuary can also be found on Google maps. Look for the large Wildlife Sanctuary sign that is in front of the parking lot entrance.
RSVPs are encouraged to keep track of how many people will be attending. Please RSVP by contacting Community Programs Manager Lianna Lee at 315.779.2239 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
