Wildlife Rehabilitation Center Hosts Celebration of Owls

If you give hoot about owls or want to learn more about our winged friends, join Humane Society Calumet Area’s Moraine Ridge Wildlife Rehabilitation Center (MRWRC) for a Festival of Owls July 16 from noon to 3 p.m.

Visitors can meet and learn about the permanent owl residents that live at MRWRC, and the program will feature educational talks, informational booths and activities and crafts for children at the center, located at 570 N. 450 E., Valparaiso, Ind. Educational talks will be held inside at the education center located next to the rehabilitation center.

MRWRC’s experts will answer questions about the native habitats of owls, their natural history in Indiana, different threats to owl species, what makes a good owl habitat, and what to do if you find owlets.

RSVPs are appreciated by contacting Nicole at 219-299-8027 or [email protected] More information about MRWRC is available at www.mrwildliferehab.org.
