Wise old owls come to Bennett Spring State Park

On Saturday, Oct. 21, Dickerson Park Zoo representatives offered a free program called “Live Owls of Missouri” in Shelter B at Bennett Spring State Park. Todd Robitsch and Vinita Williams were the presenters. Robitsch spoke while his wife Williams removed one owl at a time from its cage for exhibition. He covered a lot during his presentation about the lifestyles of the screech owl, the barn owl and the great horned owl, of which they brought live examples. For more on this story, see the LCR.
