What does a naturalist do? What does an owl eat? Children practice science process skills including observing and drawing, taking weights and measurements, and investigating specimens from the natural world. An owl pellet dissection is included and students take home their owl pellet artifacts.

This program takes place in the Discovery Lab in the Science Playground Exhibit Hall. Combine this program with a field trip to the museum.
