SPECIAL EVENT | Owl Moon Nature Trail Tour 

When it's cold and dark in the early evenings, it's easy to hole up and forget about the world outside of your couch. Catch some fresh air and witness some nature on Saturday, January 23, when one of the Owl Moon Nature Trail Tours will be offered at Genesee Country Village & Museum (1410 Flint Hill Road, Mumford).

The event features a moonlit, interactive, guided walk through the wintry woods, marshmallow-roasting around a campfire, and a chance to learn how local owls adapt to their environment. Tours are scheduled in groups of 20, and are booked every 20 minutes from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Although the sun is still setting depressingly early, the moon will be nearly full, so visibility should be pretty good.

Though museum staff can't guarantee you'll encounter owls on the trails, you can get up-close-and-personal with them at an owl meet and greet hosted by Wild Wings, Inc. The owls and their keepers will be available from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. A reading of Jane Yolen's "Owl Moon" will also take place.

Visitors should plan to arrive 30 to 45 minutes before their scheduled hike in order to have ample time to see the live owls on site. Hot cocoa will be complementary, and wine, beer, and soft drinks will be available for purchase.

Participation in the hike costs $14 ($10 for museum members), and reservations are required. Call 294-8218, or visit gcv.org for more information.
