Have you ever heard a Great Horned Owl, Barred Owl, or Screech Owl in the wild? Well those are just three of the species that are commonly heard at Cedar Bog Nature Preserve. Join Cedar Bog’s Volunteer Naturalist and retired Ohio History Connection Natural History Curator Bob Glotzhober as he provides our “Owl Prowl” talk about owls and then leads a tour on our boardwalk to attempt to call an owl in. The Owl Prowl will be Friday, Nov. 4, at 7 p.m. at Cedar Bog’s Education Center.

The cost for the Owl Prowl is $10 per person or $5 for Ohio History Connection or Cedar Bog Association members and children.

A Certified Naturalist Class on Environmental Education will be offered on Saturday, Nov. 12, at 10 a.m. for those that attended previous Second Saturday Classes at Cedar Bog for Cedar Bog Naturalist Training. This is the last course for the Certified Naturalist Training and the cost is $10 per person or $5 for Ohio History Connection or Cedar Bog Association members.
