Owl Walk and Talk Battle Creek Cypress Swamp, Prince Frederick Md

We'll have our own private after-hours visit to the Battle Creek Cypress Swamp Nature Center where naturalist Andy Brown will provide a short presentation on the owls of our region and then take us on a quarter mile walk along the swamp boardwalk to search for the owl residents of the preserve. With some luck and patience we will get to hear them calling and maybe even see one up close. The Nature Center will be open at 6:30 if you would like to spend some time with the live animal exhibits. Space is limited to 25 participants. Dress warmly and bring a flashlight. There is an $8 per person fee for this event.
Folks are welcome to call the Nature Center for questions or additional information at[masked] or visit the web site at www.calvertparks.org

    Yep I'm going to say it - it was a real hoot! Despite the frigid temps it was a delightful evening. Thanks for the education and the chatter. Getting a response from nature - it doesn't get any better.

    Road conditions are good here in Calvert County, so don't let the snow deter you from attending. It actually is better for hearing owls. Don't hesitate to call the park for information 410=535=5327

    Hi, I'll be with a friend on Friday evening who is also interested in coming on the walk. Is that OK or is it still full? If it's full and an additional person is not OK, I will un-RSVP and someone else can have the spot.

    Do you pay when you get to the preserve?

    January 16, 2013

    • andrew b.

      Unfortunately, we are not equipped yet to accept pay pal, so payment will have to be the night of the event as either cash or check. Sorry for the inconvenience.

      You do not need to register with the park. Your registration on this site is sufficient.
