Celebrate winter in Vermont!


Explore the natural world as we hike the beautiful wooded trails at the VINS Nature Center 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. 


VINS is delighted to be working with the Quechee Inn at Marshland Farm to provide you with an enjoyable evening complete with a delicious 3-course meal to end the evening.
