How do plants and animals survive our harsh New York winters? Naturalist Gabriel Willow combines a multimedia presentation with an outdoor walk to illustrate the challenges faced by plant and animals during the chilliest months. Witness some amazing adaptive strategies that help them survive, from hibernation to migration to “anti-freeze-laced” blood.

Ages 10 and older welcome with an adult.
