VINS will host an owl prowl March 1 at 5:30 p.m.

Friday, March 1, 5:30 p.m.—QUECHEE— 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.

Weather permitting, we will explore this wintry world on snowshoes.

VINS is delighted to be working with the Quechee Inn at Marshland Farm to provide our guests with an enjoyable evening, complete with a delicious three-course meal.

From 5:30-7 p.m. snowshoe the trails of the VINS Nature Center prowling for owls.

From 7:30-9 p.m. enjoy a three-course meal at The Quechee Inn at Marshland Farm.

The cost is $60 VINS members; $70 general public.

This event is for adults 21 and over. Reservations and pre-payment required as space is limited. For more information visit vinsweb.org.
