About Owls, Spiders, and Bats, Oh My! A Family Program

What’s an owl pellet? How do bats hunt? Are all spider webs the same shape?

Learn about some of our spookiest wildlife during this fun family program!

Dissect an owl pellet and examine the small bones within to determine what was for dinner. Practice making owl calls and learn the difference between a Barred Owl and Great Horned Owl call.

Examine different spider web shapes and go on a spider web hike, using a special trick to make webs more visible!

Learn about how bats hunt and make a fun craft to bring home for the spookiest time of year.

Please note, this is not a drop-off program. Adult supervision is required. This program is recommended for families with children ages 4-7.

Please note, though we love dogs, they are not permitted at Chestnut Hill Farm.
