Lebanon Regional FFA Chapter Member Lives the Wild Life

Scrapbook Heather Johnson and great horned owl

Not many people can say they have held a great horned owl, let alone fed one. Heather Johnson of the Lebanon Regional FFA Chapter in Connecticut did just that during her internship with WildCare, a nonprofit wildlife rehabilitation center. Heather enriched habitats, administered medications and prepared food for loons, red-tailed hawks, northern gannets, peregrine falcons and other North American creatures. Heather was thrilled to apply her knowledge of parasitology, animal care and animal restraint she learned in her agricultural education classes and the veterinary technology career development event.
