Mt. Cuba Center is holding an Owl Howl on Thursday, Jan. 14 from 5-7:30 p.m. Following a brief introductory lecture, people will head out into the garden and listen for their unique calls. Mt. Cuba Center’s varied landscapes and topography provide the ideal habitats for four of Delaware’s native owl species – the barred, barn, great horned, and Eastern screech – and winter is the best time to spot them roosting in our trees. Owls are nocturnal so join us as we search for them just after dusk. Dress for the weather. (Class size is limited.) A second howl is scheduled for Jan. 28. The cost is $19. Register here.
