About Us

Let the International Owl Center staff help you unravel the mysteries of owls as you meet the Center’s feathered ambassadors up close and personal. Touch owl feathers, learn to identify owls by the sounds they make, explore children’s owl art from around the world, and take pictures of perfectly mounted specimens of nine species of owls illustrating typical owl behaviors. Experience an owl up close during programs offered every day we're open.

Our summer hours (Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day) are 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday with programs at 11:00, 1:00 & 3:00. Fall through spring we're open Fri, Sat, Sun & Mon from 10:00 - 4:00 with programs at 11:00 & 2:00.
