Nature Presentation: To Sleep or Not to Sleep—Animal Winter Survival Strategies at Wave Hill

Nature Presentation: To Sleep or Not to Sleep—Animal Winter Survival Strategies

  • Feb. 01, 2020, 1pm
  • Wave Hill
  • West 249th Street and Independence Avenue, Bronx
  • Tween, Teen, Adult
  • Free with admission: $10 adults, $6 students and seniors 65 and older; $4 children 6 and older; free for members and children younger than 6; free admission to the grounds on Saturday until noon

Discover the amazing…and sometimes strange…adaptations that allow native amphibians, reptiles, mammals and birds to survive harsh New York winters. While some remain awake and active, others migrate south or enter a state of suspended animation. Environmental educator Taylor Ouellette from the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum and her live animal-ambassadors reveal these survival strategies and more. Ages eight and older welcome with an adult.
