PPL’s Susquehanna Riverlands program a real hoot

The night skies belong to the owl, and now children can shine a light on these mysterious birds during a program to be held at 10-11:30 a.m. and again at 1:30-3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 7, at the PPL Susquehanna Energy Information Center.

Join John Fridman, supervisor of the Susquehanna Riverlands, as he discusses the adaptations that allow this superb hunter to fly silently, detect prey from a distance and strike with pinpoint accuracy on even the darkest night. Geared to children ages 7-12, this program will include the opportunity to dissect a regurgitated owl pellet to see what it reveals about the owl’s habits and habitat.

Because of the popularity of this program, two separate sessions are scheduled. Preregistration is required because of space constraints and limited materials. To register or for more information, please call 866-832-3312.

The Susquehanna Riverlands, along Route 11 about seven miles north of Berwick, is operated by PPL in conjunction with its Susquehanna nuclear power plant in Salem Township. The preserve, encompassing 1,200 acres on both the east and west banks of the Susquehanna River, has been providing the residents of north central Pennsylvania with quality recreation, fishing and environmental education since 1980.
