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.

About Library Legacy Funding
This project is made possible with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund (ACHF) and the people of Minnesota for Library Legacy activities. The ACHF was created in 2008 from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy amendment to the Minnesota State Constitution. Minnesota’s 365 public libraries receive funding distributed through existing formulas to the 12 Minnesota Regional Library Systems to provide programs and services in four areas: arts (visual, performing and media), culture, literary and Minnesota history.
