Home School Days: Owls and their Pellets

Great Swamp Outdoor Education Center, 247 Southern Boulevard, Chatham Township, 07928.

Ages 6 - 10.

Winter might seem like a strange time to talk about owls, but it's actually the best time to see one in NJ.  Find out why on a guided walk, and learn what makes owls so unique. Then try your hand at analyzing what an owl ate by dissecting its pellet!

Cost: $12 per child.

Contact: Preregistration is required. For more info, call 973.635.6629
