VINS Presents Magnificent Mammals
July 17, 2017
Join the Vermont Institute of Natural Science as we celebrate the amazing world of mammals on Saturday, July 22, 2017, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Discover the specialties of our furred cousins and find out how important they are to the natural world. Magnificent Mammals will feature a variety of fascinating mammals introduced to you by wildlife presenters from around the region.
Squam Lakes Natural Science Center will present "New England Wildlife" at 11:00 am. If you're curious about the wild creatures that inhabit the New England states, join a naturalist to meet wild mammals that you could encounter in our forests, fields, or wetlands. Discover what makes them well-suited for life in New England.
Wildlife Encounters will present "Global Wildlife" at 2:00 pm. Mammals are diverse and adaptable, taking up residence in nearly every habitat earth provides. Join Wildlife Encounters as they take you on an imaginary safari, from deserts to rain-forest, where you'll meet seven magnificent mammals in person. From a fox with extremely long ears to the "little kangaroos" of Australian grasslands, you'll be awed by this diverse array of creatures.
Enjoy all-day activities including face painting and crafts. Visit the Mammal Biofacts Table, where you can feel pelts and compare mammals' skulls. Be sure to attend one of VINS' own awe-inspiring bird-on-glove presentations, which will be held at 10:30 am, 1:00 pm, and 3:00 pm.
