What would Halloween be without an owl? Maybe some creepy crawlies? How about a bat cave? Well don your costume and see all up-close -- and much more -- at VINS' annual Hoots and Howls event.
Hoots and Howls features a fun, non-scary guided tour around the VINS grounds, where guests can meet critters that crawl, watch a skit, listen to nature stories, see the Ghost Owl, explore the habitats of nocturnal animals and more.
Local Vermont newsman Jack Thurston of WCAX stopped by VINS recently to chat with educators Beth Roy and Chris Collier about Friday's Hoots and Howls. Read the article and see photos and video of a few special VINS' owls.
Hoots and Howls takes place Friday, Oct. 30, rain or shine, from 5:30 – 8 p.m., with the last tour leaving at 7:30 p.m. Reservations are encouraged. Call (802) 359-5000 x246 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Admission is $6 for all ages, $3 for VINS Members and free for children under 2 years of age.
