December is a great time to remember that life goes on outside even when we are closing our doors earlier and spending more time indoors during the colder months.
Consider taking a winter night-hike and discover how many creatures are out and about during the colder months. If you are lucky, you might get to observe a local owl traveling though his or her territory looking for a night-time meal.
If a cold night hike is not in your plans, you can always read Owl Moon, by Jane Yolen.
We highly recommend a trip to a favorite owl website called Kidwings. Visit Kidwings to learn more about owl pellets and to experience a virtual owl pellet dissection.
Keep us posted on your adventures!
