Event Description: 

Snow brings buddies together for this chilly program! Join us as we learn more about snow and ice!  Learn how animals keep themselves warm in the winter, investigate snowflake shapes, and learn about the difference between snow, ice, frost, sleet and freezeing rain!  Did you know that a bubble will shatter when it pops in weather below 32o? Find out why and unlock other mysteries of the snow at Goodwin!

Following the program we will enjoy some sledding, snowball fights and perhaps even build a snowman!  Bring sleds and fort-building materials to share with your new snow buddies!

No Snow Buddies adventure would be complete without hot cocoa, which will be provided!  Come join in on the fun!

Please dress appropriately:
2 pairs of wool socks, snowpants, waterproof jackets, waterproof gloves, extra clothes etc!
