Animal adaptation program set
The Horatio Colony Nature Preserve will host a Winter Adaptation Program on Jan. 11, from at 10 a.m. to noon.
Find out what unique adaptations animals use to survive the long and cold New England winters. Participants will look for signs of animals and learn about what strategies each of these species use to live in the preserve all winter long.
Participants will also have the chance to practice winter survival skills with a science experiment. The program is for parents and their second to fifth grade children.
The Horatio Colony Nature Preserve is a 645-acre parcel of woodlands and wetlands in Keene and Swanzey owned by the Colony Memorial Trust. It provides the community with more than 5 miles of hiking trails, a historic cabin and foundations, place-based education initiatives, ongoing research activities and a public program series. The preserve is managed by Antioch University New England.
