International Owl Center at the Library July 19th

That’s a wrap, folks!  Our last summer reading program presenter will be the International Owl Center next week!  Make sure reading logs are turned in by Friday, July 21st to be eligible for prizes as NO LATE READING LOGS CAN BE ACCEPTED due to the method by which we distribute prizes.  Get them in soon!

Live owl programs are an exciting way to learn about the environment. The International Owl Center is coming to the Spring Valley Public Library to teach us about these amazing creatures. Join us for a family-friendly program featuring a real live owl on Wednesday, July 19th at 1:30 PM. We will learn what’s so special about owls, their behaviors, and why they do not make good pets.

The International Owl Center, located in Houston, Minnesota, advances the survival of wild owl populations through education and research. The center, located at the trailhead of the Root River Trail, provides the only such experience in North America.  Each spring, the center supports the International Festival of Owls. People come to Houston from all over the country to celebrate owls and what they give to our world.

Visit www.internationalowlcenter.org for information about the owls that live at the center and owl activities.
