As the nights get longer and the cold weather rolls in, join Ripley for a two-part, socially-distanced Owl Prowl
Ripley's Owl Prowl is back! Now structured as a two-part program, join Ripley for a Zoom presentation on nocturnal wildlife, followed by a night hike to call in wild owls! All proceeds from this event will directly support Ripley's mission.
