A prime time for an Owl Prowl at West Seattle’s Camp Long

The Seattle Parks and Recreation Department will conduct one of its “owl prowls” from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Saturday at West Seattle’s Camp Long.
Interpretive naturalist Anne Bentley says the department offers guided nature walks through the year, but this time of year is often a prime time for owls.
“Since the sun sets earlier this time of year, we can offer programs earlier in the evening,” she says. “And in late February, early March, owls start looking for mates and might be hooting. That makes them easier to find.”
The prowl costs $8 per person.
Bentley says the park department will offer a frog program on March 23 at Discovery Park, adding, “usually they will be singing by this time.”
