MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - Some people spent their Sunday getting familiar with the environment at the North Branch Nature Center in Montpelier.

Every Sunday, the center hosts what they are calling Summer Nature Romps. People from the community are invited to explore the outdoors and each outing features a different theme involving a number of activities, like wildlife tracking, nature journaling, searching for plants or bird watching.

Organizers say it’s a great way for people to learn about the outdoors.

“We really want to reconnect people to that idea that you can just go out and follow your interest, experience nature and curiosity and fun in a way that is much more accessible. We had a student pet a snake for the first time, actually two students. One is about 4 and one is about 65,” said Pete Kerby-Miller, a teacher at the North Branch Nature Center.

The Nature Center will offer the Nature Romps every Sunday for the rest of the summer.
