Owl Things to Owl People: Eastern Screech Owls
with the Center for Wildlife
Tuesday, June 22
6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
via Zoom
Eastern Screech Owls are tiny but tough. These diminutive little owls may appear small, but they can pack a wallop! They can even catch and carry off prey that weigh more than they do! Join Thomas Memorial Library and Center for Wildlife via Zoom to learn more about these spunky animals! Meet Lucy, the Center for Wildlife’s beautiful non-releasable eastern screech owl education ambassador and learn about her natural history as well as personal story. We look forward to seeing you there!

The Center for Wildlife is nestled at the base of Mount Agamenticus, in Cape Neddick, Maine, where for 33 years their facility has treated over 50,000 injured and orphaned wild animals and presented programming to thousands of community members annually.  
Center for Wildlife proudly serves the New England region, typically managing 2,000 patients each year (native wildlife injured because of vehicle collisions, domestic pets, pollution, fishing lines, oil spills, and other human-related causes), representing more than 190 species of birds, reptiles, and mammals. The clinic is run out of a modest 1,200 square foot building and a campus of over 45 outdoor enclosures, all of which can be filled with patients during the peak season of April – October. The goal of their wildlife clinic is to medically treat and provide rehabilitation to injured wild animals so that they can be released back to the wild where they belong.
