Each session begins with a short talk on owls by conservation educators from Ausable Bayfield Conservation. After the talk, staff sort attendees into two groups.

One group stays in the workshop to meet live owls with Conservation Halton staff, or dissect a pellet, or have their picture taken with Otis the Owl (a human-sized costumed owl). The second group ventures on a night hike, with conservation educators, to call in and look for owls that live in the conservation area near Exeter.  After 30 minutes, the groups switch. Attendees who started inside with Conservation Halton then go outside and those that were on the night hike finish up inside. Everyone gets a chance to see and do everything, according to conservation educators.
