OXFORD – The Chewonki Foundation visited the Boxberry School in May to show students some bugs and birds.

The students experienced “The BugMobile: Insects and Their Relatives” and “Birds of Prey: Comparing New England’s Raptors.” Students saw first hand tarantulas, cockroaches and other kinds of bugs as well as a screech owl, a red-tailed hawk, a barred owl and an American kestrel.

The foundation is a nonprofit educational institution organized in 1962. The natural history outreach programs have been created to help people discover and explore the lives of plants and animals in the world around them.

The Boxberry School is a nonprofit, independent elementary school in Oxford. For information, call 743.9700 or visit www.boxberryschool.org.
