VINS After Dark

MARCH 27 - VINS invites you to tour our Nature Center after dark for a new kind of visitor experience. Come celebrate the full moon with a moonlit walk, or snowshoe, on our nature trails, listen for “Hoo” is awake in the forests surrounding our Nature Center, take in the nighttime air in the treetops with a stroll on our Forest Canopy Walk and gaze at the stars and moon from the top of our Treehouse platform.
