Hey, Edmonds Kids: Want to Dissect an Owl Pellet on Friday?

What a hoot. The mini-camp on owls is for those 6-12.

Hey, Edmonds Kids: Want to Dissect an Owl Pellet on Friday?

Friday is a development day for teachers across the Edmonds School District, which means kids will have to find something to do.

Here's an option.

Edmonds Parks and Recreation is offering a mini-camp about owls for kids ages 6-12 on Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Frances Anderson Center, 700 Main St.

Not only will a Discovery Programs ranger-naturalist explain why owls are so silent, what they eat, and where they live. But participants will also get to dissect an owl pellet.

Good times.

Kids will also be able to make an owl kite and take a walk from the Anderson Center up the hill to Yost Park to look for and call owls.

Sound cool. The cost is $31 for Edmonds residents and $36 for non-residents.  Call 425-771-0230 or register online at www.reczone.org.
