Hoot Have Guessed?

March 3 @ 1:00 pm 2:30 pm

During this workshop at Chippokes State Park, participants can observe, study, and dissect their very own owl pellet. Owls are extraordinary predators. Have you ever wondered what an owl eats in a day/night? What exactly is an owl pellet? What can an owl pellet tell us about the ecosystem in which that owl lives?

Learn more about Virginia’s many silent flight- birds of prey- owl species, whilst using ID charts to match bones of prey to particular prey species… and take home your findings!

There are only 8 spots available for this program.  Please, sign up and pay in advance for this program at the Visitor Center.  Bring your receipt to the Quayle Classroom. Families, siblings, or groups are encouraged to share a pellet. More information
