Owl Pellet Dissection Lab

4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Fitchburg Public Library
610 Main Street
Fitchburg, MA


Come learn all about owls with an engaging program from Laurie Nehring, local naturalist. Kids will learn the many interesting characteristics of owls through a hands-on experience and brief presentation. Each child will have the opportunity to dissect their own owl pellet and discover the eating habits of these beautiful nocturnal birds.

This free event will take place on Thursday, December 9, at 4pm at the Fitchburg Public Library. We will gather in the Garden Room (next to the children’s library) for the presentation and owl pellet dissection. All supplies will be provided at no cost for participants. Masks required for all while at the library.

The Owl Pellet Dissection Lab is recommended for kids aged 8+. Registration required – please only register for each child participating (not the adult). Each parent or guardian must stay at the library for the duration of the program. This is limited to the first 20 participants. Please email Lisa directly if you need to cancel for any time at ladams@northcountylandtrust.org.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Fitchburg Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
