Cold Comfort: Winter Wildlife Adaptations

Cold Comfort: Winter Wildlife Adaptations

Vermont wildlife knows how to get creative when it comes to the winter months. Join NPS Science
Communication Specialist Ed Sharron on Saturday, February 22nd, from 10am-12pm to learn who is active and who is hibernating during these harsh winter months. Ed Sharron will begin with an indoor discussion that explores how animals meet their basic winter needs for food, water, and shelter. Then, head outside for a snowshoe hike investigating different habitats. Event open to all ages!

Please dress appropriately for outdoor activity, and bring a water bottle and snowshoes if possible. Adult
and children’s snowshoes are available if needed. Event will continue snow or shine!
