Join in the fun for Owl Howl and Coyote Prowl on January 24
You can stargaze and get a glimpse of nocturnal creatures in a peaceful nighttime setting on the Katy Prairie at Katy Prairie Conservancy’s (KPC) first Wild West Tour of the year on Jan. 24.
Join Master Naturalist and birding expert Glenn Olsen for a twilight tour of the prairie from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. at “Owl Howl and Coyote Prowl.” He will lead the group out onto KPC preserves to search for great horned owls, screech owls, barn owls, short-eared owls and maybe even some coyotes. The event includes a light dinner and requires advance registration.
“Our Wild West Tours are extremely popular with adults of all ages,” says Mary Anne Piacentini. “They combine entertainment and education to make for memorable experiences. Glenn Olsen is a treasure and always provides fascinating commentary and insights about wildlife on the prairie.”
Cost for the Wild West Tour is $50 per person, and a portion of that fee goes toward funding KPC educational programs. Tours start at Indiangrass Preserve, 31950 Hebert Road, in Waller, where participants will meet at KPC’s field office. To register for the Wild West Tour, go to katyprairie.org and click on the “Visit” tab to find “events.”
The Katy Prairie Conservancy is a nonprofit land trust dedicated to preserving an ecologically vital tallgrass prairie and associated wetlands area on Houston’s far west side for the enjoyment and benefit of all.
