For kids in grades K–5. Students will hike and explore Fox Crossing and Deer Trail at Pine Hill park. They will discover signs and clues about the animals that live in the park, searching for animal tracks, homes, food, and where they might get water in the winter. During the hike, kids will try to spot the elusive black squirrel of Pine Hill.
They will learn how animals stay warm in the winter, and think about how people stay warm when it’s cold outside—do animals and people do any of the same things to stay warm?
Activities include listening to the book, The Hat, by Jan Brett. If there is snow, they will make colorful snow volcanoes. If not, kids will make an edible nature garland for birds and other small animals to enjoy. Cost: $6 for Institute members; $7 general public.
