Owen The Owl Teaches Children

Students at Pembroke Elementary School are learning more than just how to read from reading teacher Nancy DeCoursey. DeCoursey recently provided her students a chance to learn the importance of saving wildlife while also learning about the school's mascot, the owl. It all started January 23rd when an injured owl was found on DeCoursey's farm.

The wounded owl was named Owen because Rachel thought it was a great name for him. DeCoursey said they didn't know what to do with the owl once he was freed from the fence so she went to Facebook for advice. The Facebook post produced a phone number for Nuture to Nature.

The Decoursey family then took to the road to get Owen the help he needed.

Owen is healthy now and Kristin Allen brought Owen and a couple of friends to Pembroke Elementary School Tuesday morning for a special presentation.

After the presentation, Owen was taken back to the DeCoursey farm and release back to his natural habitat. If you would like to have Kristin Allen visit your school to talk about animals or if you would like to donate to help feed and care for injured wildlife, you can find Nuture to Nature Wildlife Rehabilitation Center on line.
