Fairies, raptors, and snakes – oh my!

Saturday, March 16, 10 a.m.—QUECHEE—VINS Nature Center holds two very different events on Saturday, March 16, during its normal hours of 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Discover stupendous snakes at the nature center! Get up close and personal with this often under-appreciated reptile, and learn about their fascinating lifestyle.

Watch as VINS’ snakes are fed one of their weekly meals, and learn about snakes as predators (and prey!) during live animal programs. Snake-themed crafts will be offered.

Also on Saturday, VINS will holds its Winter Forest Fairy Hunt. Connect with the natural world by exploring the trails and learning forest facts while searching for fairies.

Afterwards, build fairy houses, then warm up in the classroom with some hot chocolate and tell the VINS fairy grandmother what was learned.

Dress warmly for outside exploration. If there is snow, snowshoes will be provided.

These activities are included in general admission.

VINS is located at 149 Nature’s Way, off Rte. 4 in Quechee. For more information, contact or 802-359-5000.
