BFL Summer Reading — Chewonki: Owls of Maine Outdoor Presentation

July 27 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Chewonki presents Owls of Maine: Habits and Adaptations of Maine’s Native Owls

Three live owls are the highlights of this program, which introduces participants to the owls native to Maine and New England.

Participants will learn the identifying characteristics and calls of each owl.  Then, using talons, wings, and skulls, we explore the adaptations of these silent nocturnal hunters. This program ends with an intimate and detailed look at live owls, bringing these creatures of the night into the light!

Hands on Activity: Dissect an owl pellet — We will have one for each family/group.

Outdoor performances sponsored by Belfast Free Library Summer Reading Program take place at the top of the hill at Belfast Common — With thanks to Belfast Parks and Recreation.
