It’s that time of year again: Denver Audubon’s HOOTenanny has arrived! This annual event celebrating all things owl has been expanded this year from one day to five with daily, family-friendly programs on Tuesday, September 19th through Friday, September 22nd leading up to the big festival on Saturday, September 23rd.

Learn about the little-known owl constellation Noctua! Go on a night hike! Meet rehabilitated ambassador owls from Nature’s Educators! Listen to live music and get your face painted! All programming is held at the Audubon nature center at Chatfield except for Little Hoots story time, which is being held at the Roxborough Library.

Admission is $8 for adult members and non-member children (3-12), $5 for member children, and $10 for non-member adults. That’s pretty cheap for entertainment these days and your admission helps support the great educational programming provided by Denver Audubon.

More information, including directions to the Audubon nature center and how to register, is available on the Audubon Society of Greater Denver website.
