APRIL 2 - AUGUST 31 - View artwork by Margaret (Peggy) Lampe Kannenstine in the Neale Pavilion at the VINS Nature Center. Peggy is a local artist whose acrylic paintings and works on paper have been shown widely for decades and can be seen in many collections around the country.
In this intimate encounter you will explore the fascinating lives of raptors. Delve deep into subjects ranging from how we rehabilitate hundreds of birds each year, the fundamentals of how we train our raptors to the specialties of certain raptor groups like falcons and owls.
APRIL 5 - Math is not something that exists in the vacuum of academics; math is all around us and is utilized by scientists to build an understanding of the natural world. Come to VINS to learn about symmetry and patterns found in nature. Challenge your engineering (and communication) skills by building a shelter. Take time to explore nature and play games outside with a mathematical mindset.
APRIL 8 - Learn how Dr. Therrien and his colleagues have been studying the movement ecology of Snowy Owls on a continental scale. Using satellite telemetry, they’ve illuminated a surprising behavior of snowy owls, firmly linking the terrestrial arctic to ocean ecosystems.
APRIL 9 - Visit VINS on Saturday, April 9 for a small gathering to announce the results and celebrate a scientific collaboration between VINS & Landmark College.
