Winter Survival (gr. 4-6, outreach)

Winter is a challenging time for New England wildlife and requires both physical and behavioral adaptations for survival. Our changing climate adds to the challenges native species face, how will they adapt? Observe native wildlife and learn about survival strategies such as migration, hibernation, brumation, staying active, and dormancy.

Please note this can be either an in-classroom program with live native wildlife or outdoor schoolyard investigation or combination of both.
