Whooooo’s ready?

How would you like to take an in depth look at the specified diet of our feathered predators?

Join seasonal ranger Marley Williams for a classroom style dissecting experience where we will discuss a Barn owl’s hunting habits, their diet and their unique digestive system.

This interesting information will be followed with a hands on activity where we will dissect sterilized Barn owl pellets. We will keep track of what we are finding then compare information to test our knowledge.
