Discover the secrets of winter survival of many plant and animal species of our area! In our brief classroom session, we will examine the adaptations of evergreen plants, shrubs, trees, and forbs that enable them to carry on till spring. Also, we will take a look at some awesome examples of animal survival and adaptations, which will include: snowshoe hare, northern flying squirrel, ermine, Canada lynx, elk, Boreal owl, and wolverine. Then it"s time to hit the field and we will observe, examine, identify, and talk about the animals, birds, and the sign they leave for us as we study each clue and put together the tales of predator/prey relationships. We'll also identify evergreen plant species as we find them. Please come prepared with snowshoes, pack boots, appropriate layers, lunch, water, camera's, binoculars, curiosity, and smiles!
