Summer Youth Program: “Owl Pellets” at Makoshika State Park -Thursday, July 20 from 9:30am to 11:30am
(Glendive, MT) – Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) will host the Summer Youth Program “Owl Pellets” at Makoshika State Park on Thursday, July 20 from 9:30am to 11:30am.
Kids aged 7-13 are invited to enjoy a morning of learning about nature, as we present “Owl Pellets.” Students will learn about owls, their habitats, their eating habits and how important they are to the ecosystem. Then, students will be given the opportunity to dissect an owl pellet and identify its contents. We will also enjoy an owl snack.
Please have participants bring a water bottle, bug spray, sunscreen and dress appropriately for the weather. Please meet at the Visitor Center. Due to liability issues, we must have at least one additional adult (besides our instructors) per 10 participants. We strongly encourage parents to sign up for a program to share in these interesting and fun learning experiences.
A program schedule and registration forms are available at the Makoshika State Park Visitor Center.
For more information, call the visitor center at (406) 377-6256.
