This afternoon, the Brown Family Education Center will be showing off the aviary equivalent of a college student: the owl. The Ohio Education Center is giving you the chance to meet live specimens of three different species of local owls, presented with information about their habits, diets and nocturnal activities. The showing of the owls goes from 3PM to 5PM this afternoon. So if you’re interested in local ecology, ornithology, or or just want to see some good-looking hooters come down to the BFEC at 3 PM. And while one of the owls probably doesn’t have your lost Hogwarts acceptance letter strapped to its legs, you never know…

What: Meet the Owls!

When: 3PM – 5PM.

Where: The BFEC.

Do it tonight: The Owl Creeks Concert

It has been too long since a group of dazzling ladies in stunning dresses have sung beautiful music for an audience. I don’t know about you guys, but I have been wasting away and counting down the days since cabaret to the next time the Owl Creeks would be singing. Well, ladies and gents that day is today! The Owl Creeks concert is tonight at 8:00 pm in Rosse Hall. The Creeks will be singing a variety of great tunes, including songs by Robyn, Hall and Oates, and Whitney Houston. It is going to be the concert of a lifetime, so you really shouldn’t miss it.
