Owls through the Ages
July 16 & 17 at 2 PM
What is it about owls that captivate us? Nearly every culture throughout history around the world has held a special regard for owls. Most people loved them or hated them; they weren't ambivalent about owls. Americans are no exception. Join Executive Director Karla Bloem to explore owls on six continents through early cave art, mythology, modern witchcraft and more, and find out why cultural views around owls are so important to understand.
Real Life Great Horned Owl Soap Opera
August 6 & 7 at 2 PM
First Victor evicted Wendell and Wheezy from their own territory. Then Wheezy got sick and died so Victor and Virginia ran Wendell off. When Rusty and Iris moved in, Scarlett Owl Hara showed up to try to steal Rusty and kill Alice. Virginia died, Hagar and Helga moved in, Helga disappeared and Jill left Jack for Hagar. If this sounds like a soap opera, it is! But it's a real life, true as true can be owl soap opera that has taken place just outside of Houston.
Get the inside scoop on this ongoing owl drama in a presentation that involves audio recordings and video footage of these owls. Alice the Great Horned Owl will be present to tell her side of the story too.

We plan to accomplish our mission through biological and cultural programs and displays, green building design, citizen-science and other research, international exchange of information, the World Owl Hall of Fame, the International Festival of Owls, and other means.
