Discover the amazing, sometimes strange, adaptations that allow native amphibians, reptiles, mammals, and birds to survive harsh New York winters. Some remain awake and active, others migrate south or enter a state of suspended animation. Educators from Volunteers for Wildlife and their live animal-ambassadors reveal these survival strategies. 

Ages eight and older are welcome with an adult.
