Program Description

Event Description

Did you know owls swallow their food whole, bones and all? After digesting what they can, owls regurgitate a little lump of fur and bones. These are called owl pellets. Dissecting an owl pellet and identifying the bones inside allows your student scientists to study the diet of owls.
