The Screech Owl is one of our most common owl species, often making its home even in urban areas as long as suitable nesting sites can be found. These little owls normally nest in hollow tree cavities but can often be enticed to nest in handmade nesting boxes.  Participants in this class will put together an owl house designed specifically for screech owls using pre-cut parts and will learn all about screech owls in the wild as well as getting to meet a live screech owl in the classroom.
