How do freezing temperatures, snow, and ice affect our local wildlife and the land each year? And how might climate change alter those effects?
Over the course of this three-part series, you'll discover what flies above, moves on top, and rests within our changing winter landscape. We'll introduce you to the hidden and not-so-hidden worlds of a western Massachusetts winter. Explore both the science and crystalline beauty of ice, find evidence of active animals, and learn about some of the incredible survival techniques of critters both seen and unseen in winter. Join us for one, two, or all three programs in this series, and expereince the wonder of winter. The series will include: "Ice and the Land" and "Mammals and Bird Signs" both at Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary, and "Tracks, Trees, and Tunnels" at Graves Farm.
All programs take place entirely outdoors so dress appropriately. Indoor bathrooms are available for the first two programs at Arcadia. Masks are required indoors. There are no bathrooms available for the program at Graves Farm.
