Sport of Kings Day

Sport of Kings

August 10 | 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Included with admission to the VINS Nature Center

Lords and Ladies all are invited to celebrate the Sport of Kings—Falconry! Experience the history, language, and traditions of this 3000-year old practice of hunting alongside a trained raptor. Join us for our flighted raptor demonstrations, learn about animal tracking on a forest hike, explore the medicinal plants growing in our meadow, and try your hand at archery. You’ll even meet some modern-day Vermont falconers from New England Falconry in Woodstock. Costumes are encouraged!
