FREE! The Nature Museum is Coming to a Library Near You!

We are hitting the road this summer and bringing our enthusiasm for nature and all it has to teach us to three libraries. If you call Southern Vermont and the Connecticut River Valley home...then one may very well be right in your neck of the woods. Come stop by and say hi! Programs are free and there is no registration required. 

The lineup of environmental programs differ slightly by library; jump around to experience the full roster of knowledge up for grabs! The programs are geared to kids and are taught by our Nature Educator Rachel Brown, who can typically be found dishing out interesting facts and tidbits over at the Bellows Falls Fish Ladder Visitors Center on Fridays and Saturdays. 

Brown will lead children and adults alike through a presentation that will include discussions, the handling of objects and specimens, and a craft inspired by the critters and creatures at the center of each session's topic. 

A big thank you to TransCanada, operator of the hydroelectric power plant in Bellows Falls, Vermont, whose generous support made this programming possible. TransCanada also supports the Bellows Falls Fish Ladder Visitor Center, which is open Fridays-Sundays from now through Labor Day. Another free opportunity! We hope you will join us!
