Raptor Encounters

Oscar Wilde Room, Killington Grand Hotel
Thu Feb 21 2013 - Thu Feb 21 2013
7:00 p.m.

The Killington Grand Hotel will host predators-on-the-wing for the whole family with this special presentation in the Oscar Wilde Room. 

VINS Program Description
Live falcons, hawks and owls provide the lens through which we examine food webs, predator-prey relationships and the interdependence of the systems that support life. This first-hand encounter enables participants to understand the defining characteristics that make a bird a raptor, and their adaptations for life as a predator on the wing. Touchable artifacts and hands-on materials round out this special experience.

 

Program will be free of charge.
