Owl Moon at The Genesee Country Village & Museum's Nature Center!

Looking for something to do on the weekends this February? During 3 Saturdays in February, the Genesee Country Village & Museum’s Nature Center will host Owl Moon.

Each night includes a live owl presentation on owls' behavior, habitat and lifestyle by naturalist and owl expert Ron Walker from Friends with Feathers, Inc.

Moonlit guided walks through the wintry woods to listen for screech owls and great-horned owls depart every half hour. There maybe even a “talk” with them. (Hooting lessons will be available!) The moon will be full on February 18, so perfect for these night walks at the Genesee Country Nature Center.

Later we’ll sit by a campfire roasting marshmallow and drinking hot cocoa and listen to the beautiful nature story, the Caldecott Medal-winning Owl Moon by Jane Yolen.

Tours start at 6 pm and leave every 30 minutes with the last tour departing at 8:30 pm. Tours last about 45 minutes. If on a later tour, please make sure to arrive earlier to experience the rest of the program, including the live owl presentation.

All ticket sales are final and non-refundable. Please make sure to dress for the winter weather and wear good boots for hiking through the trails. No strollers on the trails please.

Tickets are available by phone: 585-294-8218 or online at Each tour has a limit of 20 people and reservations are required.

You can also purchase tickets online.
