Owl Prowl at the Thomson Causeway – Nov 21

owl-prowl-3Join Bob Walton and the Stewards of the Upper Mississippi River Refuge as we travel into the night to listen for the hoots, wails, and shrieks of owls on Saturday, November 21 from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. We will meet at Thomson Causeway Amphitheatre for a short “pre-owlin” program and then head into the darkness for a little prowling. Bob will converse with the owls, with a chance of drawing them closer for a good view.

The Thomson Causeway is located on the west side of Thomson, IL.  Once you reach Thomson, go west on Main Street and south onto Lewis Ave. Travel this road until you reach the campground and take the first right.  The amphitheater is located near the shower house. GPS address is 41 56.952 N  90 07.014 W.
