Half Day Owl Workshops


Wildlife talks by Wild Owl

The half day owl workshop is my most popular booking and the very best way for children to learn about wild British owls.

Based in a classroom or hall all morning gives classes the opportunity to experience my fascinating owl videos, photographs and hands on feathers, pellets, etc.


Arriving at 08.30am (or later if required) ready to start at 09.00, I will be with you right the way through to lunch and can work to your requirements, whether its working with one Year group or class all morning covering every aspect of wild British owls or working with up to 3 different classes for a general educational session.

This visit is highly recommended and extremely popular with teachers and Year leaders who book me for these workshops year after year

Bespoke schedule to suit your requirements

A mix of PowerPoint presentations and exclusive videos

Based in one classroom or hall for the morning (preferred) or move around classes
