Susitna Elementary

Gina with Arc the great horned owl and myself with Ghost the snowy owl had an awesome presentation at Susitna Elementary. The students were very interested in owls and we were flooded with comments and questions.

We were asked how many bones do owls have and we were stumped. So I gave out my email address challenging the students to email me the right answer. I received 2 correct answers before I was able to drive home. I'll going back on Monday to drop off some Bird TLC goodies for the students who emailed me the right answer.

BTW, it's 65.

This photo was taken by one of the parents and posted on her blog chachAlaska. I hope she doesn't mind me borrowing it.

Teaching our young folks about wildlife and ecology is so very important. You should be proud to be playing such an active role.
