Oberon is a barred owl that resides in a mew (cage for a bird of prey) at NorthWoods Stewardship Center in East Charleston, Vermont. Oberon was hit by a car on Interstate 89, and was rehabilitated at the Vermont Institute of Natural Science. Now, unable to survive in the wild on his own, he serves as an ambassador for birds of prey. During this family presentation, learn about the unique adaptations of owls that make their home in Vermont, and meet Oberon followed by cookies and cocoa while enjoying the story of Owl Moon by Jane Yolen. Engaging fun for the whole family starts at 7:00pm in the Witherell Room located on the 2nd floor (west wing) in the Burke Mountain Hotel & Conference Center.
Location: Burke Mountain Hotel and Conference Center, 2559 Mountain Rd, East Burke, VT
