The Environment's Research Associate Jamie Bogart will host an overnight owl prowl at the Lloyd Center on Feb. 5, from 3:30 p.m. to 8 a.m., in Dartmouth.

According to South Coast, participants will enjoy a series of stops along the country roads of South Dartmouth, where they will venture into the dark winter woods in search of owls.

Screech, great horned, and barred owls are all potential species encountered in the woods of Dartmouth. Owling time will be maximized on the Lloyd Center property, where each species can be heard or seen, and participants will likely venture out to other woodland stops before sunrise.

Participants are encouraged to bring binoculars, a camera, and a flashlight.  It is also recommended for those participating to dress warm and to put on shoes or boots for walking on the trail, which may be covered with snow depending on the weather.  Due to inclement weather, the date of the owl prowl will be rescheduled to Feb. 12.

Participants should meet at the Lloyd Center for the Environment's lower parking lot, which is located at 430 Potomska Road. The cost is $9 for Lloyd Center members and $12 for non-members. Those who are allowed into the event should be 15 years old and older. Space is limited to 20 people, according to a news release.

To register, visit, or call (508) 558-2918. Registration is required by Feb. 3 at 4 p.m.

Bogart can be reached to answer questions at (508) 990-0505 (ext. 23) or at her email.
