They have a gift shop, a photography contest and an owl pellet dissection (I am not sure I want to know what that entails!). There is even a collaborative artwork that will be created by everyone that attends, adding their own unique touch to a colorful owl painting. There is owl nest box building, owl storytime and a kids hooting contest. Doesn't that sound like a hoot? ;-)
The best part is the live owl programs featuring barn, short-eared, snowy, Great Horned, Barred owls, and Eastern screech owls.
They represent wisdom and truth with piercing eyes that are all-seeing, even in the darkest of nights. Silent, secret and majestic. As a personal totem they symbolize the capacity to see beyond deceit, a heightened intuition and are harbingers of life transitions and change.

They are even showing the USA premiere of a movie called The Secret Life of Owls! (Click to watch the trailer!)
I love the beauty of these fearsome creatures and have made them a part of my jewelry work for many years, but I have never really made them part of earrings, typically only pendants, so this will be a challenge for me! What about the owls inspires you? I can't wait to see what you do with this month's challenge. Make your earrings inspired by OWLS and share them here on Friday, March 17th!
