VINS Presents Earth Day March for Science
April 10, 2017
Join the Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) as we celebrate Earth Day March for Science onSaturday, April 22, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
On this Earth Day, millions of people are celebrating environmental and climate literacy. Show your love and appreciation for our planet by joining in raptor, songbird, and reptile programs as well as self-guided activities that visitors may walk to throughout the day. Visit Discovery Science Stations from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm: perform experiments, see adaptation in action, measure water quality, and take home the seeds of a wildflower garden. At each station, be sure to collect a badge for your hat or shirt and display it proudly as you march.
Stop by the Hawkfly for live bird programs, and discover how climate change is already affecting raptor populations around the world. Join VINS Educators in the afternoon to learn what to do if you find a baby bird. Consider becoming a citizen scientist through conservation projects like NestWatch. Be one of many earth day supporters to write a message on a prayer flag, tie it together in the meadow, and watch your hopes for the environment take flight.
Join us again in the evening, from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, for a free screening of the film "Before the Flood," starring Leonardo DiCaprio. This film, which critics have called "a rousing call to action," takes viewers on a journey around the world to witness the impacts of climate change firsthand. The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion with local experts.
All activities are included with general admission to the Nature Center, which is $15.00 for adults; $14.00 for seniors 62 and above; $13.00 for youth ages 4-17; and free for members and for children 3 and under. For more information call 802.359.5000 or email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
