Barred Owl next to the Elevated Nature Trail.
Doors to the Northwest Stream Center will open at 6pm. Owl “hooting” instruction will take place between 6 and 7pm and, for the price of admission, you will have access to great owl habitat in deep forest from an amazing Elevated Nature Trail.
At 7pm, you get to enjoy an entertaining 90-minute film called Hoot that is based on the John Newbery Medal award winning novel for young adults by satirical crime writer Carl Hiaasen. The soundtrack is by Jimmy Buffet who plays a middle school science teacher!
While trying to resist being bullied on the school bus, middle school student Roy becomes intrigued by a barefoot boy running along the sidewalk. As he investigates, Roy learns that a nearby construction site is a habitat for a protected species of burrowing owl and that a tough girl at his school named Beatrice has some connection with the barefoot boy.
The three middle school kids team up to do what they can to save the owls…and do an inspiring job! Warning – while fun to watch, most of the owl protection actions shown in the movie are fiction and should not be attempted by the audience.
Attention parents: the film is geared for 4th graders to adults and kids love this film! Space is limited so call 425-315-8592 now to reserve yours.
