CAMDEN — Merryspring Nature Center will host a free, hands-on program examining owl pellets for families and children on Friday, August 23, at 10 a.m.
In this final Free Family Friday of the summer, families are invited to Merryspring to learn about Maine's native owls. After a short presentation about owl behavior and biology, guests will be able to open up owl pellets to discover mammal bones hiding inside. There are no live owls at this program.
This event is meant for children ages 4 and up.
Merryspring is a community nature center offering walking trails, cultivated gardens, wildlife, and ecology and horticulture educational programs all year round. The park is located at the end of Conway Road, just off of Route 1 in Camden behind Hannaford Shopping Plaza.
