Have you ever wondered how turtles survive winter in Vermont? This and many other winter wildlife wonders will be explained by Vermont Fish and Wildlife Biologist Paul Hamelin, who will touch upon the fascinating strategies used by a range of wildlife (reptiles, amphibians, insects, fish, birds, and mammals) to endure and even prosper in our extreme northern winters. The presentation will include an hour slide presentation, followed (weather permitting) by a short outing to look at signs of wildlife on the NorthWoods trails. Appropriate for ages 10 to adult. Snowshoes are available. This presentation is sponsored jointly by NorthWoods Stewardship Center and Vermont Woodlands Association.
Location: Northwoods Stewardship Center 154 Leadership Drive East Charleston VT
