Howell Nature Bus
Creatures of the Night Visits Meadowview School
The Spirit of Alexandria Foundation partnered with Howell Nature Center to provide Meadowview with a hands-on experience with animals on February 19. The “Creatures of the Night” event consisted of a two-hour program rotation with two groups of approximately 18 students each through an hour-long live wildlife presentation. After that, students participated in an hour of Nature Bus exploration and ecology-based games. The flying squirrel, opossum, owl, and a ferret were animal ambassadors for the day. Students were able to feel animal skulls, pelts, feathers and dissect an owl pellet to find out what they might have eaten. This hands-on experience left smiles on everyone face. A big thank you to Spirit of Alexandria Foundation and Howell Nature Center.
