Month of Love at

River's Edge Wildlife Preserve

February is the month of love, where we celebrate all the close relationships in our life; maybe even by taking a romantic walk through the woods!  We encourage you to visit our satallite property, River’s Edge Wildlife Preserve, located on Calumet Rd., to take a hike and learn about the relationships that wildlife hold dear.

Every animal has a unique strategy for finding a mate. Did you know males owls such as the eastern-screech owl will perform courtship displays by hopping, bowing, bill snapping, and giving the female food? Wow, that is quite a show!

Just keep your eye out for the

heart shaped cut-outs to learn

more about wildlife!

Be sure to bring along your

smart phone to take a picture

with the cut-outs.  Then email

the photos to us at info@bruknernaturecenter.com.

You may even see your photo on our Facebook or Instagram accounts!
