Dusk in January is a perfect time to look and listen for Great Horned Owls, often heard calling throughout the Arboretum’s collections. Join Horticulturist Brendan Keegan and Zoo New England’s Matthew Kamm to hear about the owls’ breeding and nesting behavior, learn how to go owling ethically, and possibly hear and see a few owls as well.  

Accessibility: Participants will walk over paved roads, woodchips paths, and mowed grass.

In the event of inclement weather, registrants will be notified via email. If you have questions, please email or call the Visitor Center desk between 10:00am and 4:00pm at (617) 384-5209.
