Wanna know why an owl can turn its head all the way around? Or how it can see prey at night? Or how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop? Then head down to the Foothills Learning Center and get owl of your questions answered on Saturday, April 9, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Local owl experts will be on hand for an all-owl hoot-enanny, which includes a hooting contest, owl crafts, a lecture on owl nocturnal hunting adaptations and a hike up to Hull's Gulch to spot a pair of great horned owls. The Foothills Learning Center will even offer Second Saturdays program attendees the ickily awesome opportunity to dissect an owl pellet--which is a nice word for owl barf that contains the skeletal remains of its recent meals.
