Event Details

How do owls see at night? And why do they spin their heads around? How do peregrine falcons fly? But Why, VPR’s podcast for curious kids, comes to the Latchis Theatre for an interactive show all about owls and other birds. Bird Diva Bridget Butler and live owls from the Southern Vermont Natural History Museum team up with host Jane Lindholm to answer questions submitted by kids from all around the world!
