Owl Prowl: Saturday, January 25, 2014, 6:00 PM  The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education: 8480 Hagy's Mill Road Philadelphia, PA 19128 

At least two species of owls nest at the Schuylkill Center, great horned and screech.  Join us on a search for these elusive, magnificent creatures, surprisingly mating at this time of year.  Before the night hike, meet rehabilitated screech and great horned owls up close and in person.

Saturday Wellness WalkOn Saturday, Jan. 25, at 2 p.m. the Schuylkill Center located at 8480 Hagy's Mill Road Philadelphia will host a wellness walk.  Here's how they describe it: "Feeling cooped up yet?  Get out of the house and stretch those legs with an invigorating walk along the Schuylkill Center’s beautiful trails.  The walk will be at a moderate pace, along one of our wider and more level trails.  Adults only.  Free for members, $5 for nonmembers."

ConcertTouring New York guitarist and songwriter Daryl Shawn performs at the Grape Room, located at 105 Grape St. in Philadelphia's Manayunk neighborhood on Saturday, January 25 at 7 p.m. Admission is $7, and limited to those 21 and over. Also appearing are local artists Pete Groch, Peace Dogs, and Katya Blue.

An alumnus of Berklee College of Music who went on to develop his craft during five years in Oaxaca, Mexico, Daryl Shawn combines his taste for unusual chords with the guitar-thumping techniques of flamenco and rhythms culled from African music to create an eclectic mix fueled by a healthy appetite for rocking out (and sometimes, blissing out). He often complements his impressive guitar skills with winsome, colorful rhymes. Fans of Rodrigo y Gabriela, Tommy Emmanuel and Kaki King will find much of interest in his music.

"Daryl Shawn is one of those acoustic guitar gems that can seize you and drag you along with him in an erratic dance in the pick of a string." - Deli Magazine, New York

"...possesses the ability to take a nylon-string guitar and make it roar with dynamic precision and raging power..." - Guitar International
