Today the Outer Banks Wildlife Shelter (OWLS) came and did an education program for the entire Toucan Team at Heroes. OWLS is a non-profit wildlife hospital where injured, sick and orphaned native North Carolina wildlife is cared for in a professional and compassionate manner. Their mission is to rehabilitate and release the thousands of animals admitted to their clinic each year and to teach fellow North Carolinians how to happily and peacefully coexist with wildlife. Today they saw a great presentation about Birds of Prey and were able to see a falcon, a barred owl and a screech owl. Later today in class, they dissected owl pellets and the kids are bringing home their owl pellet treasures today! Yippee!
I was not able to go but Zach's awesome teacher just emailed all the parents pictures.
