Pickering workshop to focus on creatures of the night

January 26, 2017 by  

Owls and coyotes can be highly active even in winter, and during an upcoming Pickering workshop, participants will have a chance to find out more about them and the role the play in the area’s ecosystems.

The Hoot and Howl in Altona Forest evening of activities will kick off in the classroom, where there will be a presentation that provides information about these creatures. Details will be given about their life cycles, food sources and their role in the natural world. Organizations that host events like this can use newsletter printing to keep their database or members or the public informed of any upcoming workshops they might wish to attend.

Once the indoor portion of the evening has been completed, attendees will head out to the woods to try their hand and giving owl hoots and coyote howls, and with any luck, they will answer back. Since this part of the activity will take place outdoors, those who plan on taking part are advised to dress for the weather and wear appropriate footwear for walking in the woods at night.

This free workshop has been scheduled for February 11th from 7:00 pm until 9:00 pm in Pickering’s Altona Forest Public School, which can be found at 405 Woodsmere Crescent. Anyone who is interested in finding out more is asked to call Liana D’Andrea at 416-661-6600 ext. 5753 or to visit the event’s website.
