Event details

This ongoing program runs from Wednesday, Nov. 1, to Saturday, Dec. 30. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays.

It’s cold outside! The temperature drops as the days get shorter. We can layer up our clothes and stay inside our warm homes, but how will the animals survive? Drop in anytime during open hours to explore in and around the nature center to find different animals adapting to winter. Decide if each one is hibernating, migrating or acclimating to survive. Complete the challenge to receive a prize.
