Get up close and personal with birds of prey

Friday, Dec. 26 at 7 p.m. — KILLINGTON — Join the Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) at the Killington Grand Hotel for a free interactive raptor encounter, on Friday, Dec. 26 at 7 p.m. Live falcons, hawks and owls provide the lens through which we examine food webs, predator-prey relationships and the interdependence of the systems that support life. This first-hand encounter enables participants to understand the defining characteristics that make a bird a raptor and their adaptations for life as a predator on the wing. Touchable artifacts and hands-on materials round out this special experience.
