How do local critters get through the winter? Kids will listen to “A Warm Winter Tail” by Carrie A. Pearson, a book about how different animals survive the frozen winter.
Sensory exploration includes feeling the fur on a variety of animal pelts.
Kids will also explore the park trails looking for signs of active and slumbering animals during a guided “winter home walk,” and create their own winter home using snow, leaves, sticks, and
other natural materials.
