Live Owls Draw Crowds to Library

Mike Lano


The great horned owl pictured above was just one of the live owls that greeted a standing-room-only crowd last Saturday at the Alameda Free Library. Local families and their kids met the live owls free courtesy of the library. In addition to this event, the library is sponsoring an Owl Good Times Night Hike tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 30, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Canyon Meadow Staging Area in Oakland’s Redwood Regional Park. This night hike will visit the habitat where owls and other wildlife live. Dress for exploring in dark, warm, quiet clothing and bring flashlights with red covers. For more information, call 544-3187.
