It’s going to be a “wild” night at the Maine Wildlife Park when the “Owl Prowl” is held from 8-10 p.m. on Saturday, August 20 under bright moonlight skies. The Wildlife Park will open to the public for a “night walk” so visitors can view wildlife at night.

Park officials recommend that visitors bring their own flashlights, and they will cover them with red cellophane to improve night vision. Volunteer guides will be stationed at several exhibits with a variety of owl mounts to talk a bit about the birds’ nightlife.

In addition, viewing our resident great horned, barred and saw whet owls will add to the excitement. Owl calls and hoots will be playing too! The regular admission fee will be charged for this special night visit. This special evening program will be cancelled if it is raining.
