Among the most popular activities at the Festival are our live owl programs.
Owl programs in 2014 will be presented by Save Our Avian Resources (SOAR) from Dedham, IA.
They will bring a Snowy Owl, Northern Saw-whet Owl, Eastern Screech-Owl, Short-eared Owl, Long-eared Owl, and Barn Owl.
There will be two slightly different programs with three birds used at each program, so plan to attend more than one program if you can!
Friday, March 7 at 7:00 PM; Saturday, March 8 at 9:30 AM and 3:00 PM; Sunday March 9 at 12:30 PM
at Houston Elementary School
