Adult Owl Prowl
6 p.m.
Interpretive Center, Homer Lake Forest Preserve

Why prowl for owls in February? More owls can be found in Champaign County amid the winter months, and some species breed during this time. That means we have a good chance of hearing or seeing a live owl in the wild! Participants will get a chance to dissect owl pellets and take them home! This program begins indoors with a slideshow, and then we will hit the trails to call and search for owls! Register early for this popular program. Ages 15 & up, participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. $5 per person. Space is limited; register by Feb 19 at ccfpd.org; For more info: (217) 896-2455 or jwick@ccfpd.org.

Parent and Teen Movie Night: The Hate U Give

Homer Library 500 E 2nd St, Homer, IL 61849

Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right. THE HATE U GIVE is based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Angie Thomas.
