The Lewis and Clark Family Literacy program started the new year by creating some New Years Resolutions by setting some goals in the areas of community, health and wellness, education, relationships, work/finances and family. They were excited to have Olivia from Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center bring Harlan the owl to visit. They then dissected owl pellets!
