Kids Exploration #9 PORCUPINE HOLLOW  

March 3

1:00 PM

By permission of the Vermont Department of Health we will be meeting at the Hogback Mountain Scenic Overlook next to Vermont Distillers on route 9 for a fun adventure exploring the outdoors. The ages and numbers of participants will help guide the day but our plan is focus on the enigmatic porcupine!  We'll look at some quills and other artifacts and then head out in search of tracks, dens and maybe we'll even find a live one. Donations are requested and be sure to dress for the weather! Masks and appropriate Social Distancing are required.

Winter Shelters and Fire-building with christopher russell

March 13

1:00 PM

Christopher Russell of the School of the Forest www.schooloftheforest.com is back!  He'll lead us in learning the critical winter skills of fire and shelter building.  We will build a simple emergency shelter and learn how to heat it without burning it down!  This is a very hands-on program, plan to participate in the learning!  We will meet at the Museum and then head out for 2-3 hours outdoors.  Please be sure to dress appropriately for the weather.  Watch the Museum facebook page for updated trail and weather conditions.  Donations are requested, masks and appropriate Social Distancing are required.

KIDS EXPLORATION #10- WALK WITH A HAWK

March 17

1:00 PM

We'll meet in the VAST parking lot on Route 9 across from Vermont Distillers and meet "Bill" the Museum's flying red-tailed hawk.  This handicapped education animal has enough flight that he will be able to join us on a walk around the top of the overlook.  Kids will be able to see this majestic bird fly by and from a safe distance learn about the red-tails role in the environment and amazing hunting skills.  Bring your cameras and be ready for some up-close encounters!  Donations are requested and be sure to dress for the weather! Masks and appropriate Social Distancing are required.  

Kids Exploration #11 IS IT SPRING YET?

MARCH 31

10:00 AM

By permission of the Vermont Department of Health we will be meeting at the Hogback Mountain Scenic Overlook next to Vermont Distillers on route 9 for a fun adventure exploring the outdoors. The ages and numbers of participants will help guide the day but our plan is to head into the valley and seek out evidence of spring.  Will we find flowers?  Melting ice? Hear singing birds?  Let's find out!  Donations are requested and be sure to dress for the weather! Masks and appropriate Social Distancing are required.
