Vermont Institute of Natural Science

Experience nature like never before. Visit the Forest Canopy Walk, fun for people of all ages and levels of ability. This ADA-accessible walk gains elevation without using stairs because it follows the land’s natural slope toward the Ottauquechee River. Enjoy the tree house, the giant spider web, educational interpretation, and local artwork.

Attend educational live raptor and reptile programs daily. 17 state-of-the-art enclosures with the largest collection of birds in the northeast including bald eagles, golden eagles, hawks, owls, and falcons. Hike the interpretive nature trails through 47 acres. Shop the Nature Store for local goods and products.
