Educational Take Home Kits

Owl Pellet Dissection Kits

$40 per Kit

We are excited to announce we are now offering educational take-home kits! The first kit we have available is our Owl Pellet Dissection Kits. This kit provides children and families with hands-on experience by examining owl pellets to learn about bones(and their structure), food chains and      predator-prey relationships. The Dissection kit contains pellets from our own resident owls Hooty and Click!

*Pellets are dried, heat-treated, and individually wrapped in aluminum foil.

Keep your eyes open for the next kit coming in March!

  • 2 Sanitized Owl Pellets

  • Great Horned Owl Stuffed Animal

  • Book "Owls, Birds of the Night"
