Event Description: 

This program will consider the adaptations (both chemical and physiological) that plants, mammals and other wildlife species utilize in order to survive the coming winter.  We will focus on photoperiod (length of day) and chemically induced changed in plant and animal behavior.  During our walk we will discuss migration and hibernation as well as considerations for animals that stay active all winter long.  The program is intended for people that wish to gain a better understanding of how something actually lives and survives during below zero weather.  Please dress appropriately for cool weather.
