Owl and Owl Pellet Program
This program looks at the ecology of owls in Saskatchewan. Unlike other birds of prey, owls cannot digest their prey’s bones. What’s left behind instead is known as an owl pellet. Scientists use these pellets to study the biodiversity of the owl’s habitat.
Total program time is 45 minutes. Ten small owl pellets or 5 large owl pellets (good for 2 students) are included with your booking. You can choose to pick up your pellets BEFORE your program or we can mail them to you for a shipping fee (shipping costs vary). Additional Owl pellets are available for purchase to dissect in your classroom at a cost of $4.50/ small pellet or $9.00 for large pellet (for 2 students). Additonal owl pellets need to be ordered prior to the program by calling us at 306-975-3395.
Note: This program does not include animal ambassador time.
In this program we look at the history of how scientists group living creatures and learn the why and how behind naming of a species. Classes will get to interact with a few of our animal ambassadors in this program. Program Time is between 1 and 1.25 hours.
Species at Risk
This program discusses the importance of a healthy environment and human health while discovering why Saskatchewan has so many species at risk. This program focuses on Indigenous viewpoints of the land and species, and on what can be done to support the health of the land. Program Time is between 1 and 1.25 hours. This program includes a video tour that can be viewed anytime during the day of the program booking.
