Explore winter animal habitats with the national park

Saturday, March 5 at 10 a.m. — WOODSTOCK — Vermont wildlife gets creative during the winter months to endure the cold temperatures and harsh winter conditions. Learn what different habitats exist in your backyard and our National Park in Winter Animal Habitats, a Working Woodlands Workshop made possible by the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park. The free workshop is being held Saturday, March 5 at 10 a.m.

In the workshop, participants will learn who is active during Vermont’s cold months and who is curled up, hibernating until spring. With the basic needs for survival of food, water and shelter, animals must adapt to the harsh climates and adapt when necessary. Science Communication Specialist Ed Sharron will lead attendees on a guided snowshoeing tour investigating various habitats. Dress appropriately. Adult and child snowshoes will be available if needed. All ages are welcome. For more info, visit
