Howling coyote

An Owl Hoot & Coyote Howl Hike is being offered by the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority (CRCA) at Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area on Saturday, January 27.

Beginning at 6:30pm that evening, the whole family can take part in learning about two of our most mysterious forest friends at the Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area.

The CRCA says it is unlikely – although not inconceivable – that participants will actually see an owl or coyote, due to these animals being quite shy and stealthy. But everyone will still learn fascinating details during a short walk where the group will listen for the distinctive sounds they make.
