We are happy to welcome back VINS (Vermont Institute of Natural Science) for a free one of a kind Raptor Experience!  Join us Sunday, February 16 where there will be an opportunity to see these birds of prey.

  •  3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. on the 3rd floor of Ramshead Lodge
  •  5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. at the Grand Hotel

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.
