Barn Owl Pellet Dissection Kit through Curbside PickupSaturday October 31, 2020
10:00 AM until 5:00 PM
Contrary to what kids might think, owl pellets are puke, not poop! Owls swallow their prey whole, but cannot digest bones, teeth, and fur. Pellets are a record of what owls have eaten and scientists study them to learn more about the owl and its ecosystem.
Register to pick up a Barn Owl Pellet Dissection Kit through our Curbside Service. Each kit includes 2 sterilized barn owl pellets, a plastic tweezer, a bone chart, instructions, and educational materials. This science project is best for elementary school students and older; younger children will need assistance.
Kits are limited; one per child Grade 5 and under. After registration, the library will contact you for a pick up time through Curbside Service the week of Oct. 26 - Oct. 31.
