Join us for a free program presented by the International Owl Center of Houston, MN.

Are owl eyes more like binoculars or a magnifying glass? Are owls brightly colored, or do they have duller colors? What shape is an owl’s beak? Choosing from a variety of animal and other objects, children (of all ages) will get to select the pieces that illustrate these and other owl adaptations. When all the correct adaptations have been picked, a live owl will come out for a visit.
