All About OWL Pellets (Sun. 4 Dec, 2016 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm)

HV Photo

Swing by Hidden Villa for an afternoon of scientific exploration! Our wilderness is home to countless nocturnal birds called owls, and like most birds, owls swallow their food WHOLE. An owl pellet is the remains of what an owl eats - tiny skeletons of its prey! During this fascinating program you will learn about the local food chain and have the experience of dissecting your very own owl pellet. Just walk into the Wolken Education Center (the salmon colored building to the right of the Welcome Kiosk) and our staff will provide your materials and walk you through the process of owl pellet exploration.  This is a drop-in program for a fee of $5/child. Ages 6+ recommended, with an adult helper.

Ages 5 and up. Come help us milk Vida the Cow! Learn fun cow facts while you help feed and care for our dairy queen. In the milking parlor, you will work with a trained professional and practice proper hand milking techniques. Then we will measure how much milk is produced, then filter the milk and prepare it for storage. Children under 12 must be accompanied by a paying adult. Only paid registrants enter our very small milk house - this is a very hands-on experience!
