Winter Ecology Walk and Talk

January 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Did you know that when animals hibernate, they don’t really “sleep” through the winter? Join our naturalist, John Foley, for a winter ecology hike through Great Hollow where we’ll learn how specially adapted plants and animals survive the winter. John will also share some tips on how to identify some of our trees and other plants when they have no leaves. If there’s snow on the ground, we’ll look for and identify animal tracks. Don’t forget to bring your binoculars if have some so you can look for wintering birds along the way. Please dress warmly and wear proper footwear for hiking. No dogs, please. Appropriate for ages 10 and up. Free for members; a suggested donation of $5/person for non-members is greatly appreciated. We are limiting attendance to only 12 people to allow for social distancing and advanced registration is required. Please sign up by emailing John at .
