Great horned, barred, and screech owls make their homes in Ernie Miller Park. Come learn more about these fascinating birds during the Johnson County Park & Recreation District's Ernie Miller Nature Park Owl Prowl offered on three dates in early November.

The district's Outdoor Education Staff will lead an informative talk featuring live owls. This will be followed by a hike into the night environment. You never know whooo you might spot! Come dressed for the weather. A cup of hot cider will conclude the hike. The program is for ages five and up when accompanied by an adult.
