Quechee, VT – Explore the natural world as we hike the beautiful wooded trails at the VINS Nature Center and prowl for owls. The winter woods provide a perfect opportunity for new and experienced birders alike to seek out our feathered neighbors. In the quiet of a winter evening we will listen for owls’ calls, and without leaves, it’s easier to hear birds in search of prey. Join VINS staff as we discover the secret life of New England’s nocturnal residents.

5:30-7:00 pm: Snowshoe the trails of the VINS Nature Center
7:30-9:00 pm: Three-course meal at The Quechee Inn at Marshland Farm
