Educator Zac with Luna the Western Screech Owl

OWL’s Virtual Education Programs offer you and your group a chance to learn about the amazing species of raptors that call British Columbia home, the features and adaptations that make them unique, and about the dangers they face and how you can help. You also get the chance to meet some of OWL’s Raptor Ambassadors up close on camera! This unique opportunity can be viewed from the comfort of your own home, classroom, office, or wherever you may be around the world and can be viewed on multiple different devices, so even if members of your group are at different locations, that’s alright.

All proceeds from the education programs goes towards helping OWL continue to educate the public on the importance of raptors and what they can do to help and to help OWL provide the best possible care for the injured or orphaned raptors that come into the centre.

Requirements

  • An internet connection and a device, such as a phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer.

We will host the meeting and send you the link to join in the morning on the day of the program (or the evening before for early start programs) unless otherwise desired. If you use a different conferencing software, please let us know and we can see what we can do to accommodate.

BC Curriculum – OWL in the Classroom

If you are booking for a school, all programs will include the BC Curriculum Science Big Ideas and Content for each grade level.

We recommend no more than two classes per online session or approximately up to 60 students. This helps provide a more personal experience for the students and gives them more of a chance to interact and ask questions during the Q&A portion of the program.

Specific Program Topics

Looking for something specific? We can tailor the program to what you are looking for. Please let us know in the “Specific Topics” box when booking what particular topic you would like covered. We will do our best to create the program to accommodate your needs.

Some topics can include:

  • Food chains
  • Owls or hawks specifically
  • Flight adaptations between different raptor species
  • Greater explanation of human impact on raptors. Examples: Litter/garbage, Lead or rat poisoning, habitat destruction.

Booking

We offer our Virtual Education Programs seven days a week between 9am and 4pm Pacific Standard Time. If you would like to book an earlier or later time, please let us know and we can see what we can do to accommodate you.

or email us at info@owlrehab.ca  if you have any other questions.

Cancelling/Rescheduling

We require 24 hours notice to cancel or reschedule your program. You can do this through your confirmation or reminder email or by emailing us at info@owlrehab.ca.

Recording of Sessions

Please note, we do not allow the recording of any of our online sessions by our participants.

Owl Pellets

Owl pellets are also available for purchase if you wish to further compliment your education experience. They can be purchased ahead of time and mailed to you and you can dissect them before or after the Education Program. The pellet dissection will not be covered during the talk and would be done on your own time with the help of an information booklet provided virtually. The price is $2.99 per pellet or $19.99 for a bag of 10.

Please email us at info@owlrehab.ca if you are interested in purchasing some.
