Owl Pellet Dissection

July 12, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am

Join us to dissect an owl pellet! What Is an Owl Pellet? Owls don’t have teeth, so they swallow their food whole. The owl slowly digests its meal in the gizzard, grinding and dissolving all the usable tissue. But some tissues, like bones or fur, cannot be digested, so the owl’s gizzard compacts it into a hard pellet and the owl regurgitates it. Pellet dissection can be an exciting learning experience for students of all ages. All pellets are heat sterilized. (text adapted from pellet.com)

In this workshop, we will learn about owls and their prey. You will receive a “bone vault” to keep any bones you find.

Safety glasses are recommended. Please bring your own safety glasses if you have them. We have a limited number to provide.

This class recommended for grades 3 and up, however all are welcome. Parents must accompany anyone under than 10. Space is limited. Register with Mr. Chance or call 978-649-7361.
