Join the Owl Prowl at VINS

Friday, March 3 at 5:30 p.m.—QUECHEE—Celebrate winter in Vermont! Explore the natural world as we hike the beautiful trails at the Vermont Institute of Natural Sciences (VINS) Nature Center (149 Nature’s Way off Route 4 east of Woodstock) and prowl for owls. Find out “Hooo’s” out there making raucous noises in the nighttime forest and discover the secret life of New England’s nocturnal residents.

Weather permitting, we will explore this wintry world on snowshoes at the VINS Nature Center. We encourage participants to bring a flashlight/headlamp and dress in layers.

Reservations and pre-payment required as space is limited and usually sells out. Adults 18+ only please. Cost for the general public is $13.50; VINS members $11.50. Complimentary snowshoes available. Please let us know your size at checkout. Event will run from 5:30-7 p.m. Cancellation policy: VINS reserves the right to cancel programs due to inclement weather.
