Snow falls, ponds freeze, and cold winds blow during the winter time in northern New England! Whether you’re a human or an animal in the wild, you need warmth, shelter, food, and water to survive the winter. How do you survive the winter? Can you imagine surviving the winter outdoors? Come learn about the different animals of northern New England and how they survive the winter. Investigate animal pelts, paws, wings, and feathers to get a closer look at some of these animals adaptations. Bring your warm clothes and sense of adventure to go on a snowshoeing expedition in search of winter animal tracks! 

Snow shoes are required when participating in this program. The Nature Museum has a number of snow shoes for children and a limited number of snow shoes for adults to borrow in order to participate in this program. Please note on your RSVP if you would like to reserve some snowshoes. 

This preschool club meets inside the museum here in Grafton and explores the outdoors on a variety of adventures to field, forest and pond throughout the 90-minute hands-on program. Children should be dressed for spending some of this time outside. 

Drops-ins are welcome! Preregistration is encouraged but is not required. We hope you will join us this Friday!
