You will begin indoors to learn some background information about owls and understand owl-calling etiquette. You will then head outside to call for the wild owls that live around Hashawha. Be prepared for the weather and darkness! While it is hoped to be able to call in some owls, nature is wild and indecisive – you will take an up-close look at the Owl Ambassadors after attempting to call in the wild residents.
  1. Living History Reenactment at Carroll County Farm Museum - In the May 1863 battle of Chancellorsville, Confederate General Robert E. Lee, faced with a larger Union force advancing under General Joseph Hooker, audaciously divided his force, leaving a portion to hold Hooker’s attention while Stonewall Jackson executed a slashing attack on the Union flank. We will be portraying that portion of the battle, with Confederate forces on the attack and Union forces turning to mount a desperate defense to stop them. Historically, Jackson’s men drove deep into the Union flank before being halted by an improvised Union line and by encroaching darkness. The battle ended in a Confederate victory, but resulted in the mortal wounding of Jackson in a friendly fire incident.
  1. Independent Bookstore Day - Head to Rudolph Girls Books or A Likely Story Bookstore to celebrate!
  1. Frog Call Night Hike - Join a naturalist on a guided hike to listen for amphibians and identify their nocturnal calls
