Magnificent Migrations, 11AM

As our weather warms we welcome back many of our animal friends that left us during the cold winter months. Many critters, whether they have fins, feathers, or feet migrate to find warmer weather. During this program, learn about migrating Vermont wildlife and their journeys during the year. Fun facts and a cool craft-making activity are included! Afterwards, delve into the museum and head outside to explore! Grab a trail map, try out an exploration kit, or go on a scavenger hunt!
