Morning everyone! I wanted to let you all know that BirdSleuth K-12 will be hosting an owl pellet dissection for kids 8-12 during February break (February 21st and 23rd) at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Kids will learn about ecology, food webs, and trophic levels; and identify bones and reconstruct skeletons. This hands-on workshop is for homeschoolers and local school kids on vacation and will engage participants in the mystery and wonder of exploring owl pellets. Registration is required to attend and the event is $15 per child. All details and registration can be found at http://www.birdsleuth.org/event/dissect/.
Whether you have kids/grandkids in this age range or know a friend who does, help us spread the word! Posters are available if you'd like to help spread the word at local schools, community groups, libraries, coffee shops, etc. We will leave some in the upstairs kitchen. Any questions, please see myself or Stacie Mann. Thanks! Lindsay Glasner BirdSleuth K-12 Outreach Coordinator Cornell Lab of Ornithology 159 Sapsucker Woods Rd.
