Preparing for Winter
Explore winter survival techniques of plants and animals found at Powdermill Nature Reserve. Learn about the strategies used by different trees and flowering plants that help them survive the winter, or produce offspring the following spring. Discover how some animals live through the cold winter. Take a walk, examine the trees, and look for evidence of animals.
Where’s Everybody Going?
Learn why we don’t see some plants and animals during winter and how they come back in spring. Examine plant seeds under a microscope, make your own plant and tree guide, and see how some animals hibernate. Then, walk through the woods to see trees in their winter state and look for evidence of animals!
