Long Description:
This privately owned reserve offers protection to migrating and wintering owls. The owls spend the day here roosting, conserving energy, and sleeping after hunting each night.

The reserve is open from sunrise to one hour before sunset. Absolutely no dogs re allowed.

Some of the owls found here include the Longeeared Owl, Barred Owl, Northern Saw-whet Owl, Boreal Owl, and the Short-eared Owl.

Directions: To reach the Owl Woods, turn left (east) at the four-way stop sign by the general store and drive 3.4 kilometres along Front Road to the (seasonal) Marshall Forty-Foot Road. Marshall Forty-Foot Road is across the road from house #2320.

Drive along Marshall Road to the mid-way point, where there is an "S" in the road (1.2 kilometres , look for the K.F.N. kiosk). Park in the gravel lane or off the road edge.

If the north way in is blocked by snow, proceed straight through the stop sign, and down to the end of the Stella forty-foot road. Turn left onto South Shore road, and proceed to the south entrance, just east of 2090 South Shore Rd.
