Visit Genesee Country Village & Museum on February 3, 4, 10, or 11 for the popular Owl Moon program!
Celebrating a regional feathered friend at Genesee Country Village & Museum’s “Owl Moon” event

Genesee Country Village & Museum is partnering again this winter with Wild Wings Inc. to host the popular Owl Moon night-hike and owl meet and greet experience on Fridays and Saturdays, February 3, 4, 10, and 11. Visitors to the event will have the opportunity to take a guided night hike with a GCV&M naturalist, meet owls with Wild Wings, hear a reading of the book “Owl Moon,” and more. Plus, the Museum’s Meeting Center will be open with food and drink available for purchase. Admission to this event is $15 for the general public and $13.50 for Museum Members. Tickets must be purchased online in advance at www.gcv.org/event/owl-moon.

Hit the nature trails and listen closely for owls

During Owl Moon, visitors will head out onto the nature trails at GCV&M with a naturalist for a guided hike. Groups will experience the night woods as owls do, and perhaps hear the sounds of owls nestled in the trees above. Please note, there will still be some daylight for the groups that head out onto the trails at the beginning of the evening. Guided hikes will take place from 5 – 7:45 p.m., and the earliest tours are best for those with concerns about visibility, or those who would like to hike in relative daylight. This event will take place in snow or rain – visitors are encouraged to dress for cold weather and wear good walking shoes.

Meet owls with Wild Wings

Educators from local group Wild Wings Inc. will be on-site from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. in the GCV&M Meeting Center Auditorium with a variety of owl species in their care. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the different types of owls local to this region: what they look like, what they eat, what sorts of environments they prefer, and hear about Wild Wing’s efforts to care for these birds.  The owl meet-and-greet with owls is not part of the guided hike, so visitors are encouraged to make time to stop into the Auditorium before or after their hike.

Warm up by a campfire or in the Meeting Center Lounge

Owl Moon guests will have the chance to see the Museum grounds after hours: enjoy a craft beverage beside an outdoor campfire, have a bite to eat in the Meeting Center Lounge, shop the Flint Hill Store, or warm up beside a roaring fire in the Lounge. Food and drink will be available 4:30 – 8 p.m., and there will be a cash bar available with selections of historical craft beer, rotating hard cider, wine, and soft drinks.

Learn more about all upcoming events and programs at https://www.gcv.org/events/.

Visit Genesee Country Village & Museum on February 3, 4, 10, or 11 for the popular Owl Moon program!
Celebrating a regional feathered friend at Genesee Country Village & Museum’s “Owl Moon” event

Genesee Country Village & Museum is partnering again this winter with Wild Wings Inc. to host the popular Owl Moon night-hike and owl meet and greet experience on Fridays and Saturdays, February 3, 4, 10, and 11. Visitors to the event will have the opportunity to take a guided night hike with a GCV&M naturalist, meet owls with Wild Wings, hear a reading of the book “Owl Moon,” and more. Plus, the Museum’s Meeting Center will be open with food and drink available for purchase. Admission to this event is $15 for the general public and $13.50 for Museum Members. Tickets must be purchased online in advance at www.gcv.org/event/owl-moon.

Hit the nature trails and listen closely for owls

During Owl Moon, visitors will head out onto the nature trails at GCV&M with a naturalist for a guided hike. Groups will experience the night woods as owls do, and perhaps hear the sounds of owls nestled in the trees above. Please note, there will still be some daylight for the groups that head out onto the trails at the beginning of the evening. Guided hikes will take place from 5 – 7:45 p.m., and the earliest tours are best for those with concerns about visibility, or those who would like to hike in relative daylight. This event will take place in snow or rain – visitors are encouraged to dress for cold weather and wear good walking shoes.

Meet owls with Wild Wings

Educators from local group Wild Wings Inc. will be on-site from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. in the GCV&M Meeting Center Auditorium with a variety of owl species in their care. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the different types of owls local to this region: what they look like, what they eat, what sorts of environments they prefer, and hear about Wild Wing’s efforts to care for these birds.  The owl meet-and-greet with owls is not part of the guided hike, so visitors are encouraged to make time to stop into the Auditorium before or after their hike.

Warm up by a campfire or in the Meeting Center Lounge

Owl Moon guests will have the chance to see the Museum grounds after hours: enjoy a craft beverage beside an outdoor campfire, have a bite to eat in the Meeting Center Lounge, shop the Flint Hill Store, or warm up beside a roaring fire in the Lounge. Food and drink will be available 4:30 – 8 p.m., and there will be a cash bar available with selections of historical craft beer, rotating hard cider, wine, and soft drinks.

Learn more about all upcoming events and programs at https://www.gcv.org/events/.

Visit Genesee Country Village & Museum on February 3, 4, 10, or 11 for the popular Owl Moon program!
Celebrating a regional feathered friend at Genesee Country Village & Museum’s “Owl Moon” event

Genesee Country Village & Museum is partnering again this winter with Wild Wings Inc. to host the popular Owl Moon night-hike and owl meet and greet experience on Fridays and Saturdays, February 3, 4, 10, and 11. Visitors to the event will have the opportunity to take a guided night hike with a GCV&M naturalist, meet owls with Wild Wings, hear a reading of the book “Owl Moon,” and more. Plus, the Museum’s Meeting Center will be open with food and drink available for purchase. Admission to this event is $15 for the general public and $13.50 for Museum Members. Tickets must be purchased online in advance at www.gcv.org/event/owl-moon.

Hit the nature trails and listen closely for owls

During Owl Moon, visitors will head out onto the nature trails at GCV&M with a naturalist for a guided hike. Groups will experience the night woods as owls do, and perhaps hear the sounds of owls nestled in the trees above. Please note, there will still be some daylight for the groups that head out onto the trails at the beginning of the evening. Guided hikes will take place from 5 – 7:45 p.m., and the earliest tours are best for those with concerns about visibility, or those who would like to hike in relative daylight. This event will take place in snow or rain – visitors are encouraged to dress for cold weather and wear good walking shoes.

Meet owls with Wild Wings

Educators from local group Wild Wings Inc. will be on-site from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. in the GCV&M Meeting Center Auditorium with a variety of owl species in their care. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the different types of owls local to this region: what they look like, what they eat, what sorts of environments they prefer, and hear about Wild Wing’s efforts to care for these birds.  The owl meet-and-greet with owls is not part of the guided hike, so visitors are encouraged to make time to stop into the Auditorium before or after their hike.

Warm up by a campfire or in the Meeting Center Lounge

Owl Moon guests will have the chance to see the Museum grounds after hours: enjoy a craft beverage beside an outdoor campfire, have a bite to eat in the Meeting Center Lounge, shop the Flint Hill Store, or warm up beside a roaring fire in the Lounge. Food and drink will be available 4:30 – 8 p.m., and there will be a cash bar available with selections of historical craft beer, rotating hard cider, wine, and soft drinks.

The instructor recommends either a Kevlar glove with rubber gripping dots or a Kevlar glove reinforced with steel threads. Participants may bring along their own fixed-blade knife, borrow a knife for use during the class, or purchase their own fixed-blade knife to bring along. The instructor recommends the Flexcut brand of knives. Fixed-blade knives and Kevlar gloves can be found at local wood carving supply stores or online.

Springerles
Baking: Springerles

One of our most popular classes!

Explore the mystery of making springerles – those beautifully embossed cookies. Learn the technique of making a crisply stamped design that lasts through the baking process, then hand paint your cookies with natural colors! Take home a batch of assorted stamped cookies and your own wooden, hand-casted springerles mold. Participants should bring baking sheets and an apron. Space is limited, and this class tends to sell out very quickly!
