The Athens-Clarke County Public Library holds a variety after-school activities for students in the Athens area. Today, EcoReach teamed up with the ACC Library for the after-school program’s first ecology themed event. Middle and high school students from around Athens were able to learn about predator traits and trophic dynamics through dissecting owl pellets.
Students were able to find and identify the bones of a variety of prey items, including rodents, shrews, and voles. Both students and volunteers had lots of fun learning about these top predators!
