Owl Prowl
Meet at the Silver Lake Day Use Area


If you’ve never heard a real owl, or for that matter seen one up close, then you don’t want to miss out on this fascinating nature walk.

Join our naturalist on a 30-45 minute walk along the woods. Owls will be called … listen closely to see if they respond. Hopefully you’ll see one up on his perch, wide-eyed and regal as he surveys his woods.

After the hike, stick around for a bonfire and s‘mores and storytelling. Wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather as you will be outside for the duration. Bring something to drink, a roasting stick if you have one, camp chair, flashlight or miner’s cap and a great outdoor or nature story to share.

Event is held rain or shine. No pre-registration is required. Owl Prowls are being held at 9 magnificent state parks within the metropolitan Detroit area. Find the complete listing at

The Owl Prowl programs are FREE, however a Recreation Passport is required for park entry. The $10 Recreation Passport is available at any Secretary of State when renewing your tabs or any State Park headquarters.
