This cute little screech owl was recently found near a Park trail as an abandoned chick. He has since been cared for by the talented team at the Mid-South Raptor Center and was successfully re-released into the woods here at the Park!
What should you do if you find an animal in the Park that looks alone or like it needs help? Give us a call at (901) 222-PARK! Please don't touch or attempt to move the animal -- our wildlife is, well, wild! We'll take it from there and involve our network of animal experts as needed, just like with this screech owl!
Work is being done by MLG&W near the Walnut Grove bridge at the Wolf River in the Lucius Burch Natural Area. Pleaes be alert in this area.
