Fun and educational morning to learn about owls, bats, scarecrows, and more. Visitors can paint pumpkins to take home, compete in a scarecrow-building contest, and meet some living owl-ambassadors from The Audubon Society’s “Eyes in the Sky” (EITS) education program, including Max, a Great Horned Owl. Since 2000, EITS has brought a variety of programs to children and adults in the Santa Barbara area. EITS features wildlife messengers-—birds of prey native to our area that are no longer capable of surviving in the wild. The birds’ physical presence and their unique individual stories of survival following conflict with human activities educate about the impacts of human actions—both good and bad. They inspire respect and understanding for local wildlife species and their habitats'
