VINS Nature Center
Raptor rescue, canopy walk, nature trails, natural science education & exploration.
A learning center that houses injured raptors (birds of prey) and releases them back to the wild, or houses birds of prey that can’t be released back for their own safety. Lots of buildings with different types of small animals native to Vermont. Beautiful hiking trails. Live raptor demonstrations…
Your family will be amazed at the owls, Ravens and Eagles at this amazing Nature Center. VINS has a room where the birds fly right over your head in a demonstration. They are all rescues and nursed back to health. Terrific place to visit and explore for kids and adults!
“Terrific family friendly museum. Part of the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Park. Gorgeous trails on old carriage roads lead up to the star that overlooks the Village of Woodstock. X-Country grooming on those trails during winter. Wagon rides and sleigh rides available through Billings Farm.”
“If you have children traveling with you and you’re looking for a day trip adventure, this is the place to go. Not sure what their policies are for during Covid- but they have lots of interactive games and activities for the Little ones. ”
“Popular, rustic counter serve featuring gourmet, farm-to-table New England eats and craft beers.”
“Daytime pub scene – a great place for family & friends. Check out The Path of Life while you're there! ”
