Additional Information:
Join volunteer naturalists for a hike in the high country to learn about the many ways that wildlife survives winter in the Rocky Mountains. We’ll talk about hibernation, dormancy, migration, and various strategies for animals that are active all winter long. We will also look for signs of wildlife activity, including tracks, scat, and browse marks on trees. Bring drinking water, and clothing and boots suitable for a moderate 2-mile hike in snowy, cold and windy weather. Ski or hiking poles are also recommended due to icy trail conditions.
