Special to the Daily

The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa is continuing its partnership with Eagle County’s Walking Mountains Science Center this winter by once again offering the free interactive Nature at Night programs.

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.

New this winter will be a program called Bat Bonanza. This program will de-mystify these flying mammals, sharing the truth about vampire bats and how they use echolocation to find food.

Free and open to the public, the Nature at Night schedule includes:
