Winter Adaptions Hike
December 2, 2017 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM| Free
Whether we have snow or not…on Saturday, December 2nd, at 1 p.m., join Professor Mike Draney, Biology Professor at UWGB, at Christa McAuliffe Park (3100 Sitka Street), to walk and talk about why winter is such a difficult time for plants and animals. Attend so that you can see some of the amazing adaptations Wisconsin species have made to deal with winter conditions. During the hike you will look for the sometimes subtle signs of life during the cold half of the year. Be sure to dress for the weather…kids and grown-ups welcome, and be prepared to encounter a few hills and unpaved trails.
The Baird Creek Preservation Foundation hosts free guided hikes through the Baird Creek Greenway that are open to the public. The hikes are led by experts in the related area and are a great way to learn, have a little fun and enjoy the outdoors. For parties of 6 or more, please call ahead.
