NCLT is pleased to bring Laurie Nehring to present “Owls: The Perfect Predator” as a part of the Gardner Museum’s speaker series on April 26th at 7 pm. Join NCLT and the Gardner Museum for an interactive slide show, complete with props and demonstrations, to learn more about owls and why scientists often call them “perfect predators”. This program at the Gardner Museum is family friendly, with an optional children’s art activity following the presentation. It is NOT a live owl presentation! The event is preceded by a museum-hosted reception at 6:30 pm. Reserve your seat for this Gardner Museum event by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 978-632-3277. Admission to the presentation for non-member adults is $3.
Laurie will also be hosting an Owl Prowl the following night, April 27th, at 8 pm where we will quietly explore the forest just as the owls are becoming active. This event is open for all ages and will take place at Alisauskas Conservation Area in Gardner. Park on the right side of Howard Street in Gardner alongside the field where the conservation area sign is located. Howard Street is off of Clark Street near the Winchendon town line. Dress in layers and bring a flashlight just in case. The hike is sponsored by NCLT and the Gardner Conservation Commission.
