Winter at the Nature Center

It always surprises me how many people think we close up and go home for the winter. Not even CLOSE! The wildlife around here (and no, I’m not talking about the staff) is active and fun to watch. We keep the feeders stocked and if you’re into birdwatching, it’s a great place to be!

Our winter calendar is every bit as busy as any other time of the year. In fact, sometimes even more so! It’s a good time to take a closer look at the many exhibits we have in the barn…the dioramas, the animal mounts, the energy efficiency exhibits, a recap of the 2008 flood, and more. It’s an even BETTER time to get outside and get some fresh air into your lungs, stretch your legs and work off that holiday turkey!  We have special family programs scheduled during the week between Christmas and New Years when many of you are taking extra time off. Fun if it snows, fun it there’s no snow!

Nature goes on all year ’round, and so does the Nature Center. Check out our calendar and find something new to try. We look forward to seeing you this winter!
