Friday, Feb. 1, 5:30 p.m.—QUECHEE— The Vermont Institute of Natural Science presents Owl Prowl 2019. There will be two prowls: Friday, Feb. 1 and Friday, March 1.
Explore the natural world by hiking the 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 feathered neighbors. In the quiet of a winter evening, guests will listen for owls’ calls, and without leaves, it’s easier to hear birds in search of prey. Weather permitting, the tour will be on snowshoes.
VINS is working with the Quechee Inn at Marshland Farm to provide guests with an evening complete with a delicious three-course meal, following the snowshoe. The snowshoe goes from 5:30-7 p.m. and the meal at The Quechee Inn will take place from 7:30-9 p.m.
The cost is $60 for VINS members and $70 for the general public.
Registration has passed for the Feb. 1 prowl. Register by Feb. 22 for the March 1 prowl. T
The event is for ages 21-plus. Register and get more information at vinsweb.org.
