The County has officially proclaimed twenty-twenty as the year to gather. To gather a basket full of local produce, meats, and spirits from a local farm store or market. To gather your friends and family around a big table (or kitchen island), to celebrate each other and the local bounty before you. To gather around a restaurant table and appreciate the love the chefs bring to your plate. It’s the year of you, and your connection to this place through the food you eat and the people you spend time with.
It is said that if you’ve got squirrels in your neighbourhood, then you also have owls! But why is it that you rarely see them?
Join Naturalist Peter Thoem of the Owl Foundation as he discusses our obsession with owls and the many mishaps (mostly man-made) that befall these magnificent creatures. Peter will also share the important work of the Vineland-based Owl Foundation which is dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating injured and orphaned owls.
After the presentation, stay and meet Rucker, our resident barn owl from Under the Canopy: Animals of the Rainforest!
