Owl Prowl

12/7/2013 | Big Oak Tree State Park | East Prairie, MO

“Who cooks for you?  Who cooks for you all?” Do you know what kind of owl says this? Have you ever heard the ghostly sound a screech owl makes? They don’t screech. Come to the park for an easy half-mile, night hike to listen for and learn the calls of the nocturnal raptors of Big Oak Tree State Park. Meet at the rear parking area near the former lake at 5 p.m. or at 6:30 p.m. The hikes will traverse the lake levee. In the event of inclement weather, hikes will be cancelled.  Please call Big Oak Tree State Park at 573-649-3149 or Hunter-Dawson State Historic Site at 573-748-5340 for a reservation prior to Dec. 7.
