Family Fun at Owl-O-Ween: The Owls of Hobbwarts and Live Owl Release 

Come dressed in your costume to the Hobbwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for this fun, family-friendly program as we learn about the owls of Hobbs State Park with Professor Whoratio Owliver (a.k.a. Park Interpreter Chris). Immediately after will be a short program by Northsong Wild Bird Rehabilitation about barred owls, followed by the release of one that has been rehabilitated. Each child will receive an owl L mask to make and a treat bag, courtesy of Northsong. This event is outdoors at the new education pavilion. The event is free, but a $5 donation/person would be greatly appreciated, which helps Northsong with their rehabilitation work. They also have special Owl-o-ween t-shirts available to order at this site: https://www.bonfire.com/owl-o-ween-shirt/Registration is required and will be limited to 64 people. Call the Visitor Center at 479-789-5000 to register. COVID-19 SAFETY GUIDELINES ARE IN EFFECT FOR GUEST AND STAFF SAFETY. SPACE MAY BE LIMITED.
