Owl at the Octagon
April 25 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Octagon Center for the Arts in Ames will be hosting a Naturescape exhibit in a few months in our Community Gallery. They are partnering with the City of Ames Public Art Commission for a birdhouse making/decorating competition during the duration of the Naturescape display. Following the exhibit, many of the birdhouse will then be placed in and around city parks for the birds to use.
Terrie, the Octagon Gallery Shop Manager and dedicated SOAR volunteer, will give a presentation about SOAR, their mission, and raptors in Iowa. The screech owl will also help participants learn about cavity nesters and the importance of birdhouses, to coincide with the Ames 2019 Art in the Parks BIRDHOUSE COMPETITION.
