Campfire Talk: Owl Prowl

Join us for a fun campfire talk in the great outdoors! Campfire Talks are a series of educational & entertaining programs located in the great outdoors. Campfire programs are held many Friday & Saturday evening (May –October) in DeSoto State Park

Ever wonder whooo's going "hoot" in the night? Bring the whole flock and join naturalists Jamie Rogers & Brittney Hughes as we search for our resident owls. Your prowl will begin with learning how these amazing nocturnal predators are adapted to be stealthy at night or during the day, their habitats, and behaviors. Dissect owl pellets to see what owls at DeSoto State Park consume followed by a night hike through the woods to listen for fascinating night sounds.
