Participants are encouraged to meet the park interpreter on High Bridge over the Appomattox River to listen for various owl species answering recorded calls.

The program will start at 9 p.m., but participants should arrive at the River Road Parking area by 7 p.m. to allow for walking time to the bridge.

The program is free, but a parking fee of $4 per vehicle will be charged. Visitors who bicycle from Farmville or Rice are required to have an operating headlight and rear reflector. The trail should be clear of visitors by 10:45 p.m.
