Description

Tickets: $10 per individual or family

Have you heard an owl hoot while bats fly under the moonlight? Join conservation biologist Todd Carnahan under giant oaks in the Somenos Garry Oaks Protected Area at 7pm on Saturday, October 12 for this free family event. The site is also known as Ye’yumnuts, a sacred ancestral place to the Cowichan people. We’ll compare all the local owl species and learn some amazing facts about these nocturnal predators. Once you learn a few calls, you will test your skill in your hooter contest for illustrious prizes and glory. Next, we will go looking for bats and their winged foods, discuss the finer points of attractive bat boxes, and hear their recorded calls adjusted for our ears. Bring the whole family together for a real hoot! But leave the dog at home for safety.

Parking is available at Trillium Way or Seine Road, both of which are accessed via Lakes Road, first or second left up Lakes after the roundabout. Then walk into the Somenos Garry Oaks and Ye’yumnuts site. Please be respectful by keeping to the trails.
