Owl Pellet Dissection and Art Workshop
February 23 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Get ready because this class is a HOOT!
Dissect Owl Pellets for Bones. A fascinating dive into Owl Biology & Prey relations that ends in an Art project you can Take Home.
A DIY Art Project that is perfect for all ages and skill levels!
We will learn about an Owl’s prey by examining their remains. You will be given a sterilized owl
pellet to dissect. With the tools of the trade, a helper to guide you through your journey, and a
bone chart you will discover what creatures your bird had for supper.
This is a slow, meticulous process that is exciting and rewarding. Every bit of fur you remove reveals more bones and answers about the owl’s habits. All pellets have been heat-treated to remove bacteria, and we will ensure that we’re practicing safe dissection. Let’s see how many skulls you can find.
One of our guests was even able to uncover five in one pellet! WOW!!!
After we have dissected the pellets you get to create an art piece with the remains found in your pellet! You do not want to miss this event!
