Something For Everyone A new exhibit is opening on 10-12-19 at the VINS Nature Center – the Forest Canopy Walk. The “Walk” will complement VINS’ mission and enhance its world-class environmental education for visitors. Designed so people of all levels of ability can enjoy it, this new feature will offer every generation a new perspective and way to experience the beauty of the landscape. The landscape of VINS’ 47-acre property is perfectly suited to allow people to gain elevation without the need for stairs or steep ramps. Because the land drops in elevation as it slopes toward the backwater of the Ottauquechee River, we can build a boardwalk that remains relatively level while the land drops away beneath. At the highest points, visitors will be an amazing 65 feet above the forest floor getting eye-to-eye with tiny warblers, woodpeckers and squirrels!
