1:05PM 12:00AM Owl Day Have you met Tally, the Nature Center’s newest Eastern screech owl? She joins Owen, a family favorite of the Endless Mountains Nature Center. Owen and Tally cannot be released back into the wild due to injury, so they visit with children and families during educational programs and events, such as the upcoming Owl Day on Sunday, Nov. 10 from 1-4 p.m. In addition to viewing the Nature Center’s raptors, learn about birds of prey during a program presented by Bill Streeter, an educator from the Delaware Valley Raptor Center. Hone your drawing skills during an art session using a live owl as a model or engage your crafty side with an owl-themed craft. Children enjoy learning by using their hands to dissect owl pellets and pick up useful knowledge about what owls and other birds of prey like to eat.
