ECHO Presents: VACATION BLIZZARD!
February 25 – March 6, 2012

BURLINGTON, VT-- Not enough snow this winter? What are children supposed to do during their February break? Come experience the Blizzard at ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center. ECHO will be holding special events for children during the February vacation running from Saturday, February 25 through Tuesday, March 6, 2012.

Kids can participate in enjoyable winter activities including burying a moose in paper snowflakes and sharing snow stories to make a pop-up museum. At 12:30 p.m. daily we'll be using homemade catapults to start an indoor snowball fight! You’ll never know what you’ll find at ECHO this winter.

ECHO’s education team will also be on hand along with the animal care staff to educate guests with daily demonstrations and animal feedings.
