WHO…. WHOO…. WHOO is ready for Trek ‘N’ Treat? Help us celebrate the spookiest time of year with a not-so-spooky event perfect for all ages. This year will be owl-erific, featuring a variety of Missouri’s nocturnal feathered fliers. Show up wearing your costume, and take a stroll down our short Trek-n-Treat trail. As you progress along the trail, learn about these impressive birds at stations explaining the owl-erific facts that make these birds unique. Bring your treat bucket! After you “trek” to each station, you may find some treats fall into your treat bucket. Remember to keep an eye out for our creature-characters along the trail. They love to hand out treats and are excited to see “who” will come visit them. Afterwards, visit the inside of the nature center for owl-themed games, activities, and crafts. The World Bird Sanctuary will be putting on programs for you to see these amazing birds in action. We will release specific details regarding these programs closer to the program date. We hope to see you there!
