Image of an owlExplore the world of owls with naturalist Marcia Wilson, who will present “Who’s Watching You? Owls of the World,” at the First Congregational Church on 26 Central Street. The fun and interactive program offers something for everyone, from Kindergarten to adult. Attendees will learn more about these secretive birds of prey, practice hooting, and get close-up views of six rescued owls. Each owl presented has a disability that prevents him or her from surviving on their own in the wild. These non-releasable owls serve as captivating ambassadors from the world of wildlife.

Tickets are $5 per person or $10 per family, and are available in advance at the library. Proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Library.
