Ice and Snow

Saturday, February 9, 2019 - 10:00am - Sunday, February 10, 2019 - 11:45am
James L. Goodwin Conservation Center
23 Potter Road
Hampton, Connecticut 06247
Event Type: 
All are welcome
Event Description: 

If winter ever arrives, we should have a covering of snow and ice. Or is it the other way around? They both bring soft silent beauty to the landscape and we love them. But we also fear the winter weather driving, shoveling, slipping and sliding, and the cold. In this program we will join Juan Sanchez in discussing the formation of snow and ice crystals and the role that they play in the ecosystem. We will use polarized light to look at ice crystals and perhaps study preserved snowflakes from the winters of 1974-1980. The program is indoors and outdoors so dress for the weather.

Inclement Weather: 
Call the center.
