During the program, participants view a 20 minute presentation on three owls, their habitat, and the special adaptations they need to survive. After the presentation guests will have a photo opportunity with an owl and may be taught how to handle an owl on a gloved hand. This unforgettable program held at Lehigh Valley Zoo is a special chance to get close to and learn about these beautiful birds.
Do we get to touch or pet an owl?
Due to the needs of our animals guests are not permitted to touch the owls. Guests may however, have the opportunity to handle the screech owl on a gloved hand. Our educators are experts in determining if it is appropriate for you to do this, and will instruct you in the safe way of handling the owl.
