Join VINS for an all-weekend Earth Day Celebration! We’ll be exploring the many ways you can take action to help the environment in your daily life. Learn how easy it is to start composting, get creative with upcycling projects, and take home some tasty recipes for locally sourced, seasonal foods. You’ll also meet some of our resident raptors and reptiles up close, and learn what you can do to help these majestic creatures thrive in the ecosystems we share with them.
We will also be hosting Erin Rounds, author of “Where’s Winter?“, a children’s book about animals experiencing the effects of climate change. She will be doing a reading of her book and signing books on Saturday.
