Guided Walk: WINTER WALK 
Join us for this short walk on some of Five Rivers’ flat trails. Along the way we will look for birds that stay during the colder months and discuss some of their strategies for surviving winter. We will look for tracks and trails of other animals and find out who has been there and what they were doing. Bring binoculars if you have them.

FASCINATING FISHERS
These amazing members of the weasel family are secretive and rarely observed. Find out why they are becoming increasingly common in our local suburbs. Discover what these predators eat and how they live at this indoor presentation. If weather permits, we will head outdoors to discuss what habitat these animals live in and what signs they leave behind.
