Story Time: Owl Moon
Feb 18 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Let’s imagine what it would be like to hike at night to see or hear an owl! We’ll hear a real and an imaginary story about owls, and learn and sing some owl sounds to share with your family.

We’ll read a story or two together and go outside for a walk related to the tale. Stories are for ages 34 years old, but younger and older children are welcome.
