Winter Ecology Program

Grades 3-6

Spend the day learning about the winter adaptations of plants and animals, by going on a snowshoe or boot hike with a naturalist, and playing guided outdoor activities on insulation and scent-tracking. If there are six or more inches of snow, the hike is on snowshoes (included).
