  • Wednesday, December 16, 2020
  • 9:30am - 10:30am

Science Detectives Online Owls Whoo Did You Eat

New interactive offering for children 6–7 years old:  Do owls have teeth? How and what do they eat? Together with a Museum instructor, participants will learn about the most common owl species in our area, what they like to eat, and what calls they make. Bring your sleuthing hat because you will solve the mystery of what one owl ate by dissecting your own owl pellet at home! 

Each live program will come with an interactive kit that contains materials for the child  to use during the class. All activities encourage the development of skills in scientific observation and thinking.
