Owl Pellet Dissection (Virtual Event)
Join us for an interactive program about owl pellets! Owls eat insects and small rodents like mice. The parts of their diet that they cannot digest such as fur and bones are then regurgitated as a pellet. During this program, you will be able to dissect an owl pellet of your own!

Bag pick-up is September 25: Please choose one of two times below to pick up your owl pellet bag. Please arrive in front of the Nature Center at the time you signed up at and do not exit your car. Someone will greet you with your owl pellet bag and a live owl!
Program date is September 26 – Watch live via Zoom: Participants will also be able to watch and interact with a Fontenelle Forest Raptor Recovery as they dissect an owl pellet live via Zoom. This program can be accessed by Zoom on a laptop or mobile device, with internet access. A link will be emailed to all registrants the day prior to the program.
