STEAM Kids – Chewonki: Owls of Maine

February 21, 2019 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

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. Beginning with slides and sounds, 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!


STEAM Kids is a weekly hands-on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) program for kids 8 and up. This is a free drop-in program. Participants are welcome to come to one session or come every week.
