I enrolled the kids in a couple of sessions of Jr. Ranger camp over the summer at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. During the two day camps they attended they learned all about owls and studied animal and bird tracks.

Owl crafts, books, and activities
If you've been reading my blog for a while,  you may remember that they attended the Lil Rangers camp last summer too.

This year though I emailed the camp director ahead of time and asked if I could move the kids into the Jr Ranger camp. They didn't quite meet the age cut-off (by just a couple of months) but when I read the activities that they would be doing, particularly studying owls, which I have such a love for, I needed them to be a part of it.

The learned about the owls wing span and how they fly.

They studied owls up close.

And they studied owl pellets to determine what owls eat and did rubbings of animal and bird tracks to match the tracks to the right animal or bird.

If you are wanting to do your own owl study, I've rounded up tips and ideas, craft projects and books over at Rusty and Rosy.
