Exploring Binoculars

Exploring Binoculars (School Vacation Program)

Saturday, April 21, 1:00pm – 2:30pm
Birds of Vermont Museum, 900 Sherman Hollow Road, Huntington, Vermont 05462

Ever wondered how binoculars work? Ever wanted to take some apart? Home-schooling and vacationing children are invited to join us at the Museum to find out more as we dissemble non-working binoculars, investigate optics, and consider how eagle eyes work.

Best for ages 8-16. Younger children should please bring an adult to help. Teachers welcome!

$10 members, $15 non-members. Fee includes admission for child and one accompanying adult.

Enrollment limited to number of defunct pairs of binoculars (feel free to bring your own ancient, damaged or just plain not-very-good-anymore pair). Registration is required. Register by calling (802) 434-2167 or emailing museum@birdsofvermont.org
