Cold Comfort: Winter Wildlife Adaptations

February 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

Vermont wildlife knows how to get creative when it comes to the winter months. Join us for this two-hour workshop to learn who is active and who is hibernating during these harsh winter months. NPS Science Communication Specialist Ed Sharron will begin with an indoor discussion that explores how animals meet their basic winter needs for food, water, and shelter. Then, head outside for a snowshoe hike investigating different habitats. Event open to all ages! Space is limited, please preregister.

Please dress appropriately for outdoor activity, and bring a water bottle and snowshoes if possible. Adult and children’s snowshoes are available if needed. Event will continue snow or shine! Co-sponsored by Vermont Coverts and the Vermont Woodlands Association.
