Contact  Five Rivers Environmental Education Center

Location  Five Rivers Environmental Education Center, 56 Game Farm Road Delmar, NY 12054 - Map

Winter Preparation: Methods employed by insects, mammals, birds, and reptiles 

Dwindling daylight and cooling temperatures trigger humans to dig out hats, gloves, and heavy coats. Other animals, including insects, mammals, birds, and reptiles, take these environmental cues and prepare in remarkable ways to survive winter. Join an inquisitive group of adults as we wander Five Rivers and wonder about its inhabitants’ preparations. Photographs, guidebooks, skulls, pelts, and other materials will help enlighten us as we discuss the focused, quiet activity all around us. Who knows? It might just trigger us to be more proactive in our own preparations for winter! 

Space is limited; registration required.

Dates: Thursdays, November 3, 10, and 17 (rain date: December 1); Time: 10:00–11:30 AM

Fee: $20 for members; $25 for non-members
