Take a “Superb-Owl” walk.
The Sippican Lands Trust will host a “Superb-Owl” Walk in honor of Super Bowl Sunday at the Hagemann Woods property in Marion.
The walk in the woods will start at 4 p.m. and end by 5:30 p.m. to give attendees time to watch the Super Bowl.
The parking area for Hagemann Woods is located off of Point Road approximately two miles south of the intersection of Route 6 and Point Road in Marion.
The walk is free for members with a suggested $5 donation for non-members. Headlamps or flashlights are suggested for the walk back to the parking area.
If the Superb-Owl Walk is canceled due to inclement weather, information will be posted to the lands trust’s website and Facebook page. For more information about this walk contact firstname.lastname@example.org, call 508-748-3080, or visit www.sippicanlandstrust.org.
The walk will go through heavily forested areas that are home to owls. Although hearing the owls can’t be guaranteed, owls are often more active during the evening because it is their nesting time.
