Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) will host its 8th annual Owling Walk at Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park on Saturday, May 12 from 7:30pm to 10:00pm.

Owls frequent the park year-round and are most vocal in early spring. Most years both Northern Pygmy Owls and Northern Saw-whet Owls can be heard in the park depending on conditions and time of year.

This is an easy night walk (approximately 2 to 3 miles) up the park road to search for owls. This year’s Owling Walk will leave from the Main (Lower) Visitor Center. There is a $4 charge per participant. Please call ahead to reserve a spot.

A bottle of water, a snack, sturdy footwear, weather appropriate clothing, and binoculars are all recommended. Flashlights are optional and strongly discouraged while actually looking for owls.

For more information, call the park visitor center at (406) 287-3541.
