Feathers, Fur, and Scales
This wonderful live animal program introduces students to the similarities and differences between mammals, birds and reptiles. Characteristics of each type of animal are examined through hands-on materials.
Birds of Prey
This program offers an exciting and comprehensive exploration of local diurnal and nocturnal birds of prey. Living examples and hands-on materials help demonstrate flight, sight, hearing and other adaptations.
Students engage in an in-depth study of native California owls, observe the natural habitat of a live owl and examine a variety of hands-on specimens such as skulls, bones, feet, talons, wings and feathers.
Take an up close look and discover how mammal's physical structures and behaviors help improve an animal's chance for survival in the wild. Through the study of skulls, students will learn how to identify if the animal is a herbivore, omnivore, or a carnivore. They will also learn about habitats, predator/prey relationships and basic animal ecology. Observe living examples of selected animals during the presentation.
