Got cabin fever? Join VINS for their winter programs, starting Jan. 10.

Is winter giving you cabin fever? Come join us at VINS for any or all of our fun-filled and informative winter programs. From story programs for kids to in-depth discussions on sustainable living, VINS offers something for everyone to beat those winter blues.

In seven sessions, Choices for Sustainable Living helps participants explore the meaning and vision of sustainability from individual, societal, and global perspectives. The first session, "A Call to Sustainability," will take place on Jan. 10 from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Quechee Library. The series will continue for the next six Thursdays. VINS is partnering with the Quechee Library and the Catamount Earth Institute to offer this discussion series that is free and open to the public. For more information or to pick up a copy of the booklet, call 802-295-1232.

VINS' Homeschooling series starts up again on Jan. 10 from 10-11:30 a.m with the topic, "Teeth and Skulls." Join a VINS educator to foster your child's curiosities about the natural world through engaging, hands-on activities designed specifically for homeschooling families. VINS offers programs geared to specific age levels, (grades 1-3 and 4-6), and both groups meet at the same time and cover the same topic.

Pajama Parties start next week!
