VINS Owl Festival


The Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) hosted their annual Owl Festival on Saturday. Folks travelled from as far away as Saratoga NY for the event. The event was listed in Yankee Magazine as something to do in February! 
The day started with many activities for young and old alike; from exploring Owl Senses, Owl Bingo, Owl Crafts and Obtacles to Owl Pellet dissection (a very popular activity.)

The highlight of the day was meeting the owls. About 75 VINS visitors greeted Snowy, the Snowy Owl.
