It’s always worthwhile to visit VINS, especially when they have a special event… today, it was “Marvelous Mammals Day”, so in addition to their display of live raptors (hawks, eagles, owls, etc.) they had several live mammals on display, with expert docents explaining their interesting features. We enjoyed the presentation of a red-tailed hawk, a porcupine, and a possum.
The mammals (and their handlers) were guests from New Hampshire’s Squam Lakes Nature Center.
Later, we walked and climbed through their new Canopy Walk, which is an incredible elevated boardwalk with several towers… one of which has a “spider web” net for the kids to play, and another is so tall it pokes above the tree canopy and offers a view of the nearby river and wetlands.
