Step Outdoors – Winter Is Coming!

Snowy Owls & Winterfest Details!


by Home Page Staff, , - January 9, 2018

The weather may have been warmer lately, but snow is coming – and with it, two wonderful events.

Scott Weidensaul will be live and in person at the Wellsboro Area High School Auditorium January 12th 2:00pm. Meet and greet, along with book signing, will follow the presentation. This even is sponsored by the Tiadaghton Audubon Society and is free to the public. Five years ago saw the largest invasion of snowy owls into the eastern United States in perhaps a century — and marked an unprecedented opportunity to learn more about these mysterious Arctic hunters. Author and researcher Scott Weidensaul will share the story of Project SNOWstorm — how a huge, collaborative effort focused on snowy owls came together in a few frantic weeks, funded largely by the public, and and has grown into one of the largest snowy owl research projects in the world, continuing to make discoveries and unexpected insights into the life and ecology of this great white raptor.

Scott Weidensaul is the author of more than two dozen books on natural history, including the Pulitzer Prize finalist “Living on the Wind,” about bird migration, “Return to Wild America,” and “The First Frontier: The Forgotten History of Struggle, Savagery and Endurance in Early America.” His newest book is “The Peterson Reference Guide to Owls of North America and the Caribbean.”
Weidensaul is a contributing editor for Audubon, a columnist for Bird Watcher’s Digest and writes for a variety of other publications; he lives in the mountains of eastern Pennsylvania, where he studies the migration of owls and hummingbirds.

Later this month, Step Outdoors will be hosting their annual Winterfest event – Saturday, January 19th.
Activities being planned include: XC skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, ice fishing, sledding, kids crafts, displays, guided hike/snowshoe excursion, educational programs, interactive demonstration and more! Enjoy hot chocolate and hot dogs – FREE while they last! Skis, snowshoes and skates provided in limited quantities or bring your own. Don’t forget your sled. There’s fun for the entire family.
