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.
