Come face-to-face with live owls! 

Mysterious and fierce hunters, owls inspire stories of transformation and wisdom in cultures around the world. 

In this outdoor exhibition, created in partnership with Little Ray's Nature Centres, see owls (and an eagle!) in their specially-designed habitat enclosures:

  • Max, a Great Horned Owl, known for a distinctive hoot and ear tufts 
  • Khaleesi, a Eurasian Eagle-Owl with striking orange eyes 
  • Rucker, a Barn Owl—a species that's endangered in Eastern Ontario 
  • Two Snowy Owls: a male (Oberon) and female (Luna). Snowy Owls are one of the few owl species that migrate
  • Juno, a female Bald Eagle that was rescued and rehabilitated after injury

Owls and eagles are birds of prey known as raptors. There are over 500 species of raptors around the world! 

Don't miss this rare opportunity to connect with these astonishing creatures and discover some of their amazing adaptations.
