Winter Survivors (gr. 1-3, outreach)

How do wild animals cope with the changing seasons? They migrate,hibernate, brumate or stay active! Observe native wildlife and learn about unique adaptations that allow animals to survive our cold New England winters and changing climate.

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