Uncover the mystery of great horned owls

Explore the natural history and folklore of the great horned owl during a program 7-8:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 11, at PPL’s Montour Environmental Preserve.

Jon Beam, PPL senior naturalist, will begin this program with a reading of Jane Yolen’s story book, “Owl Moon.” Afterward explore the life history of great horned owls, how to identify these birds, some of their unique behaviors and what makes them so successful. In addition, discuss other owls found in the area and venture outdoors and try calling a great horned owl and listen for it to call back.

This free program will take place in the Environmental Education Center. For more information, contact the preserve at 570-437-3131 or jdbeam@pplweb.com.

PPL operates the preserve, about four miles northeast of Washingtonville, in conjunction with its Montour power plant in Derry Township.
