$25 per family, per house, all materials included, recommended for young people 4th grade and up
Come to the Hitchcock Center and learn about these cool, nocturnal predators! They’re little (less than 10“ tall) and they eat all kinds of creatures! We’ll start off with a 20 minute presentation on these wonderful critters – how they live and what they love to eat! We’ll hear recordings of their ghostly calls! Then we’ll move to the work tables and each family will assemble a nesting box for screech owls. Families will take their boxes home to see if they can put them up and get nesting ‘screechies’ in your backyard! Directions on where and how to put up the boxes will be provided. Bring your own Phillips head screw driver.
