Owl-o-Ween Teaches About the Nighttime Hooter

By  | 

Just as the name implies, Owl-o-Ween features the different owls found in the Big Bend area.

St. Francis Wildlife Preserve hosted Owl-o-Ween Saturday in downtown Tallahassee. It gives adults and kids an opportunity to learn about the wise bird of the night.

Education director of St. Francis Sandy Beck says, "We think that it's very important to involve the children. We do outreach education programs every week. We do several programs in all the schools, and today we're teaching the children about camouflage."

Kids could make camouflaged owls out of pine cones and other natural materials. The St. Francis Wildlife Preserve cares for injured wild animals.
