We often find that it’s difficult to plan programming for the winter months due to nature being so incredibly dormant throughout the winter. Whether it’s trees entering their dormancy, chipmunks entering hibernation, turtles entering brumation, insects entering diapause, or salamanders entering aestivation -- there seems to be a lazy mode for every animal! What makes these terms different? Join us for a special open house as we take a look at nature while it rests. We will talk about the differences between these terms inside while putting together tree life cycles to take home. Should the weather cooperate we will also have snow shoes available for participants to try on the trails!
Open houses are FREE! Open houses are FUN! Open houses are for the whole family! The nature center will be open for four hours. You are welcome to drop by any time during those hours. You will have a chance to explore this amazing park, check out the nature center, participate in crafts, games and other ongoing activities... including FREE KAYAKING! A new theme will be featured each month so come to one or come to all! You are also welcome to make an afternoon of it and bring along a picnic to enjoy with a scenic view of the huge pine trees and beautifully secluded Lost Lake.
