According to VINS, "Rachael and John were given a personal tour of VINS’ natural science exhibits, live birds of prey enclosures, and avian rehabilitation facilities by VINS naturalists." The VINS president had this to say about Rachael's visit:
Our staff was really impressed by Rachael’s interest in VINS’ environmental education programs and rehabilitation work. It was an honor to have her and John choose the VINS Nature Center from among all the exciting visitor destinations in this region, and we appreciate the national media exposure she is giving us.
Rachael and John participated in the release "of five yellow-bellied sapsuckers." Now, who wouldn't want to do that on their vacation?
The press release also offers details on the theme of the 2010 season of Rachael's Vacations:
Rachael’s Vacations takes Rachael and John across the country to discover how to "rough it" in style, showing viewers new ways to enjoy the outdoors, 21st Century style.
