Get ready to be introduced to one of Nashville's hidden treasures, the 300-acre non-profit nature preserve known as Owl's Hill.
You'll take a tour of the main grounds, and learn about the history of the sanctuary. Your guide will introduce you to the 5 special owl residents, and tell you each one's story. Plus, you'll go on a guided nature hike on some of Owl's Hill's beautiful hiking trails --including a stop at a magnificent old oak tree from the 1600's.
About your guide:
Dan DeFigio is a Certified Tennessee Naturalist, and an Owl's Hill volunteer program instructor and trail guide.FAQ: How hard is the hike? Easy-to-(barely) moderate. The hike will cover 1-2 miles on hiking trails in the woods.What should we wear and bring? For the trails, wear hiking boots if you have them, or closed-toed shoes if you don't. The terrain is not difficult, but you will be in the woods. Long pants are strongly suggested since tick season doesn't end in middle Tennessee until January. Bring water, bug spray and/or sunscreen if you wish.Owl's hill is purposefully rustic, so there are (very clean) porta-potties, but no plumbing. Pets (except for service animals) are not permitted at the Sanctuary. What if it rains? We are ON rain or shine, unless there's lightning. Rain dates are scheduled on an as-needed basis.
