Meet at Nevada County Government Center (Rood Center), 950 Maidu Ave.  Pre-trip sign-up is required to keep group size manageable.  Due to the popularity of this trip, it will be offered on two nights – your choice.  Five species of owl are possible on this trip: Great-Horned Owl, Western Screech-Owl, Northern Saw- whet Owl, Spotted Owl, and Northern Pygmy-Owl.  Be forewarned that owling can be exciting, or it can be a bust.  Owling is mostly listening, but we are sometimes treated to a sighting.  While there are no guarantees, we usually manage to hear several species and often see one or two of them.  DRESS WARMLY!  Rain, snow, or excessive wind or fog will cancel the trip – call if in doubt.  The trip is mostly driving and standing at “hot spots”.  Quiet children are welcome; no dogs, please.
