Owls are one of the interesting and unique nocturnal creatures in Missouri's outdoors. People can learn more about what happens in nature after the sun goes down at the Springfield Conservation Nature Center program "Halloween Happening: Into the Woods with Red Riding Hood." This free event will be held Oct. 27 and Oct. 28.
