Owl Pellet Investigation at Cragsmoor Free Library (Saturday, November 9, 2019 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM)

Minnewaska State Park Preserve

Phone: (845) 255-0752

Join Environmental Educators from the Sam’s Point Area of Minnewaska State Park Preserve for this exciting, hands-on program at the Cragsmoor Free Library. Owls are fierce birds of prey who hunt small rodents, insects, and even small birds during the late hours of the night. Owls swallow their food whole, and what cannot be digested is turned into a small pellet that they expel. Examination of these pellets is a fun, hands-on, and educational activity for people of all ages. After opening and going through the pellets, we will try to identify which animals the bones came from by measuring the skull and other bones found. This program is recommended for children between the ages of six to twelve years old, but all are welcome. Pre-registration is required by calling Nancy Krum, Library Director, at 845-647-4611 or by emailing [email protected]
