Date: Saturday, January 6, 2018
Time: 10:00am-11:30pm
Ages: All ages
Cost: By donation
Location: The Nature Museum

When you look out into the winter landscape in northern New England, it is often hard to believe that there is much of anything happening in the forests and fields. However, life continues almost secretly. To discover this winter world, you must look for hints and clues! Come learn about the many sneaky animals of winter and how to find the hints and clues of their winter wanderings. Feel real animal pelts, learn the basics of animal tracking, and be ready to head out on snowshoes to test out your winter animal detective skills!

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. 

The museum will be open for exploration after Kindred Spirits until 4 PM.
