Nature at Night will be held on 16 Saturday evenings in The Westin lobby from 4 to 5 p.m. Led by a Walking Mountains naturalist, topics for the weekly hands-on programs range from how to track Colorado animals in the winter snow to which animals in Colorado migrate and why to the different types of birds and animals found here in the Vail Valley.
