Winter is upon us! As we’ve began to adjust to winter, so have many plants and animals. Many of these plants and animals spend all spring and summer preparing in order to be ready for the cold winter months. Every species has their own ways of transitioning into the winter season. Some species rest, while others stay active. Some species make a long migration away, while some actually migrate to our region. These preparations are incredible examples of the wonder and adaptiveness that exists in the natural world. Come learn about what adjusting to winter means for local wildlife and plants. Be ready to test your fort building skills as you and your bear cubs are put to the task of making your own bear dens!

About Kindred Spirits

This monthly Saturday program series is designed to build a greater understanding between all creatures of the Earth by exploring the mysteries of nature. By offering a shared experience that draws families together, participants will develop a stronger kinship with our Earth and each other. Programs will take place rain or shine, with hands-on activities both indoors and out.
