Obed Wild and Scenic River Announces Spring Owl Prowl on May 4

Wartburg, TN (2018-04-29)  The Obed Wild and Scenic River will be honoring the 50th anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act all throughout 2018.  One of the most unique events celebrating this historic act will be a ranger-led owl prowl program on Friday evening, May 4, 2018.  The program will begin promptly at 8:30 p.m. (ET) at the Lilly Bluff Overlook parking lot, which is located just off of Ridge Road in Morgan County, Tennessee.  Participants will get a chance to learn about the habits and mannerisms of the Eastern Screech Owl and the Barred Owl.  We will walk a short distance along the Lilly Bluff Overlook Trail while we use recorded owl calls to try to attract these birds of prey.  Participants are asked to bring flashlights and wear sturdy shoes.  Reservations are not required for this free event, which should conclude by 10 p.m.

For more information, please call the park at (423) 346-6294.
