Winter Programming a Success!

As our thoughts turn to spring with the arrival of the equinox, we are reflecting on the wonderful winter we had.

We successfully conducted three Winter Tracking Workshops with Ann Christensen and three Birding Walks with Poo Wright-Pulliam. Over 50 tracking participants saw signs of animals such as ermine, snowshoe hare, marten, and more! Over 30 birders saw a variety of winter species ranging from ducks to swans to songbirds to hawks to owls and more! Read more about the bird walks on our blog. Special thanks to volunteer Keefer Reynolds for assisting with our tracking workshops and this winter's Science After School program.

If you weren't able to enjoy our winter workshops this year, you missed out! Luckily, we're already working on plans for next year!
