Chewonki @ the Gardens: Owls of Maine

Chewonki is coming to the Gardens for four single-day naturalist residency programs, free to all guests with admission. Drop in anytime during your visit between 10 am to 2 pm. This is the third of four days, all focusing on animals and their amazing adaptations.
Two live owls are the highlight of this program introducing participants to the native owls of Maine and New England. Using pictures and sounds, participants will learn the identifying characteristics and calls of each owl. Then, using talons, wings, and skulls, explore the adaptations of these silent nocturnal hunters. This program features an intimate and detailed look at live owls, bringing these creatures of the night into the light! Drop in anytime between 10 am to 2 pm.
