From the May long weekend to the September long weekend, SBOIC’s focus is on in-house tours of our facility. Emphasis is on learning about the prairie ecosystem, and the conservation of species and habitat. Bring a whole class or bring your family. Our interpretive staff passes along information about the Burrowing Owls, prairie habitat, as well as new research and conservation efforts being made by biologists and other wildlife organizations.
We can accommodate large or small groups. Guided tours are available 5 days a week from 10 am to 5:00 pm.
Such a visit to the Centre includes:
- the opportunity to view SBOIC’s captive owls in their outdoor enclosures;
- the chance to see wild hawks, coyotes, jackrabbits, gophers, and other prairie wildlife in the adjacent field;
- the opportunity to learn more about native prairie plants in the Evergreen Native Prairie Garden;
- and perhaps the chance to meet one of our imprinted owls!
