3rd Annual Glen Helen Hike & Owl Release - Slow to Moderate Pace

Time for another hike with Mountain Laurel. We will cover 4-5 miles of trails at a slow to moderate pace of 2 to 3 mph. Then we will head over to Horace Mann Meadow on Bryan Park Road near John Bryan State Park for the Owl Release Program. Bring a sack dinner to eat during the program. I also recommend bug spray, water, hiking pole and hiking shoes or boots. I hope to see you there it should be a lot of fun. Hike starts on time. Don't be late!

Owl Program and Release

Thursday, June 26, 2014, 8:00 p.m. in Glen Helen. Four species of Ohio owls will be presented in this program for our Ecocampers and the public. Then young screech-owls will be released to the wild. The program location is across from the Horace Mann Meadow on Bryan Park Road near John Bryan State Park. Parking is available in the meadow. Bring a blanket or lawn chair.

    So very sorry - Marty & I got there late due to me getting lost & traffic. Didn't intend for that to happen. Would have liked to hike with all of you. The owl program was amazing though - Thank you so much!

    Nice hike, good pace for my recovery...you're getting stronger, Laurel! The owl release was excellent, very touching to see those little guys fly off to start their new lives.

    Thank you Laurel, We had a great time with gorgeous scenery, owl release, and 5 miles was not too bad at all!

    Great evening for a hike! We hiked 5 miles at 2.5 mph and then enjoyed the owl presentation. One the baby owls flew over my head! It was great meeting new people and old friends!

    Where is a good place to park if only going to the Owl release? I don't think people can park next to the Horace Mann area? And will it be dark to hike back to Glenn Helen after the Owl release? Wish I did not have to work at 7. But thought maybe this needed a little more info?

    I'm still going, and I'll probably be hiking beforehand. If that makes a difference to anyone. I'm new to this group so I'd like to meet some people.

    Sadly, I'm opening up my spaces for the next in line. A mandatory 10 day out meeting has been called for a scout backpacking trip. Someone will enjoy my spots.
