Winter Detectives
What local animals hibernate? Act out what really happens when an animal hibernates and how it is different from an animal who is only sometimes dormant. Discover what trees are doing in the winter and investigate why some lost their leaves and why others can stay green year-round. Seek out tracks and signs of mammals that stay active and move around despite the cold. Watch birds that can survive winter months, notice which summer favorites are missing, and play a migration game to learn why birds come and go.

Birding: First-timer or expert, birders of all experience levels are invited on a gentle walk through varied landscapes in search of seasonal birds. Learn how to distinguish and identify birds using shapes, colors, sounds, and behaviors. Binoculars are available to borrow.

Habitat Hike: Join a Field Teachers for a seasonal hike on pathways less travelled, past old stone walls and through meadows and forests. Search for signs of how wildlife make the sanctuary a home, learn how a small herd of goats help with landscaping, and explore how humans have used this land in recent history.
