This wise old owl guards your garden and welcomes friends!
Professor Owl is made of all recycled metal, including a shovel, rebar, horseshoes, washers and a saw blade. The bottoms of the feet are extended so he'll stand in your lawn or garden without any other support needed. Just a gentle push into the ground and he'll stand in any dirt or grass.
Owls are sprayed with a polyurethane seal to help resist weathering. Keep in mind, any metal will eventually show rust so it's not a bad idea to respray it every two or three years.
When your owl arrives, just fasten the wings to his back bolts using two provided washers and nuts. This also makes storage easier if your owl needs to hibernate in colder climates.
The makers of these owls donate to the Animal Defense League of Washington County, Virginia. This amazing group is an all-volunteer, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization whose programs include spay/neuter cost assistance, trap/neuter/release programs, pet food pantry donations and adoption events, including special barn cat adoptions.
Providing a unique economic opportunity for artisans, your purchase also helps support Ocean Conservancy: working to bring people, science and policy together with a mission to counter the many threats to ocean health and sustainability. From protecting vital, vulnerable ecosystems through legislation, to enforcing accountability among leaders, Ocean Conservancy seeks solutions for a healthy ocean and the wildlife and communities that depend on it.
Measurements: Overall about 13" x 13": 13 1/2" from head to feet at ground level, 7" body width without wings, 3" front to back.
