Trail adventure continues

TROY — Take a hike on the Brukner Nature Center trails this January and search for three owl cutouts that will be watching over the forest.

Over the winter, owls are covered from head to toe with warm insulating feathers making January a great time to find a mate and begin the nesting process.

Be sure to bring along your smartphone to learn more about the owls and take a picture with them that you can email to [email protected]. You may even see your photo on the center’s Facebook or Instagram accounts.
