Do your kids ever wonder where the turtles, frogs, and chipmunks live in wintertime? They are sleeping, under the ground. Children discover which animals hibernate and how they prepare for their long, winter sleep. This program includes live animals, a brisk hike, a craft, a snack, and more for kids ages 3-6. The class is limited to 12 participants.
