Adventure East, Winter Snowshoe Walks

January 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EST

Explore winter ecology on beautiful Trustees properties while becoming acquainted with the wild world and let Adventure East be your guide. This winter wonderland adventure will begin with a brief explanation of the human history on the location followed by an exploration of the wild world. Learn about winter track and sign, what animals are moving in the snow, and who is tunneling beneath. We will also explore how plant life adapts to darker and colder temperatures and which birds stay for the winter. This adventure is for all ages. Snowshoes or shoe spikes and poles will be provided to make this a safe and enjoyable experience.
