Stinky Owl
by Melanie Burgess Books LLC
This book was inspired by the birds of prey at the Rocky Gap State Park Aviary. The Aviary houses and cares for birds that have been injured or impacted in some way that makes them unable to survive in the wild. The birds are ambassadors in a Statewide Environmental Education Program called "Scales & Tales," with a three-fold mission: to encourage an appreciation for the splendor and diversity of Maryland's Wildlife, promote an understanding of the relationship between man and wildlife and the habitat they share, and encourage people to visit state forests and parks to further explore that relationship. The scenery illustrations in this book were drawn by the author from different locations around Rocky Gap State Park, including the Indian Trail Marker Tree.
