Cold temperatures and short days pose special challenges for living things, but nature is ingenious in finding solutions.
In this workshop, led by Maine Master Naturalists Bonnie Sammons,
Linda Woods, and Harry Vayo, we’ll get out in the field to examine some
of those solutions.
We’ll explore what animals are up to in the winter by observing their
tracks, scat, and other traces. We’ll see what the winter remains of
weeds can tell us about the lives of the plants. Finally, we’ll learn
about the special ways trees cope with our long cold winters.
If you cannot or prefer not to venture out on snowshoes, you are welcome to stay in the warm Center sipping hot cocoa, chatting with others, and awaiting the snowshoers returns for a group conversation.
