UT Arboretum Society/Forest Resources AgResearch and Education Center - Owl Prowl

The Forest Resources Research & Education Center
Oak Ridge
Saturday, October 22, 2016
6:30 - 10 pm

The Owl Prowl, one of the most popular events offered at the UT Arboretum, will again be sponsored by the UT Arboretum Society, the Clinch River Raptor Center and the UT Forest Resources AgResearch and Education Center on Saturday, October 22 at the UT Arboretum, 901 S. Illinois Ave. (Hwy 62) in Oak Ridge.

Naturalists from the Clinch River Raptor Center, Kathy Strunk and Katie Cottrell will bring live owls for display and will give information about their natural history. The Raptor Center was started by John Byrd 31 years ago at Clinton Middle School. To date 2,000 birds have come to the Raptor Center to be rehabilitated. Kathy and Katie have shared the responsibility as co-directors of the Raptor Center for over 25 years, and have given hundreds of programs in East Tennessee on birds of prey. At 6:30 p.m. the evening event will begin at the UT Arboretum Program Shelter (follow the signs and drive to this location). The initial program will be followed by walks on the grounds of the Arboretum led by Kathy, Katie and John Byrd. The goal is to hear some owls. Those who do not wish to go on the walks may stay at the shelter and visit with the centerís educational owls.


Unless otherwise noted, all events are open to the public.
