WHERE DO THEY GO?
In the winter we can put on more layers, have some hot chocolate, and sit by a nice fire to stay warm. But what about wildlife? How do they stay warm and make it through the toughest part of the year? Join our naturalists around a campfire to learn about the amazing ways wildlife survives in the harsh winter months.
