 Main Exhibit Gallery - 'Owls' 

In Lethbridge, owls are a fairly common bird of prey, sharing urban landscapes with us.
They are at the top of the food chain, and due to their highly adapted senses, they play
an important role in the ecosystem through the control of pest species. 

Owls draw our attention & evoke emotional reactions. Thanks to their human, almost child-like features,
even people who have never seen an owl can accurately identify a bird as being 
one.

This exhibit helps visitors lean about Owl's heightened sensory adaptations and to discover that nearly
every aspect of their physiology speaks to their exceptional hearing capabilities! 

Please note: this exhibit's interactivity has been modified to 'look' and 'listen' activities for safety of our visitors
during the COVID context.
