Quechee, VT – On Saturday, January 13, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, the Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) will celebrate the wildlife of winter at the VINS Nature Center with a fun-filled day of family activities.
Winter is upon us, but there are still wild things to discover! Celebrate the tenacity of winter wildlife at the VINS Nature Center with a fun-filled day of family activities. In the morning, swing by the classroom for kid-friendly crafts and story-telling. Meet some of our cold-blooded critters, and learn how they survive Vermont winters. Warm up with some hot chocolate and join author Alvin Breisch and illustrator Matt Patterson for a discussion of their new book, The Snake and the Salamander.
The celebration continues in the afternoon with games, science experiments, and a guided snowshoe tour of our nature trails. Of course, you won’t want to miss the chance to meet our resident raptors up close.
