What strategies do animals use to adapt to cold weather? How does animal behavior change in winter? Through this customized in-school program, students examine animal specimens, animal shelters, and a live animal visitor as they learn more about the strategies animals use to survive changing weather conditions. Students find out more about migration, hibernation, and dormancy, which local animals employ these strategies, and who remains active. Birds, insects, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians will be represented. This interactive program takes place in a three-station format to enable students to examine small details of our specimens.
