How do animals survive the harsh winters in the Northeast? Learn about how fish adapt to the unique properties of water to survive the cold weather, how some birds migrate while others brave the winter, and how some animals prepare their bodies to hibernate.
How Do Animals Survive Winter? is a three-part, science, nature and animal program that helps children develop an understanding of how animals migrate, adapt and/or hibernate to survive the freezing winter environment.
The sessions will be conducted in partnership with the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Albany County and taught by a science and animal educator. Children who register should commit to attending all 3 sessions, because the learning builds each week. For ages 8-12. Registration required. Register on January 24 for ALL 3 Sessions (1/24, 31 and 2/7).
Educational activity kits will be given to each child that registers, which will include the science lessons and activities for each week. The kits can be picked up at the library curbside before the 1/24/21 class. An email will be sent to registrants when the kits will be available for pick up.
This class will be held virtually via Zoom. The link will be sent to registrants prior to the class.
