A Long Winter’s Nap – How Furry Creatures Get Through Winter

 FRANCONIA – Do you know which NH wildlife species go into “true hibernation” in winter? Hint: there are only three – and bears are not among them! Join Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust (ACT) on Friday Jan. 25th, 6 p.m. at the Lafayette Elementary School multi-purpose room in Franconia to learn more!

ACT’s monthly Speaker Series kicks off 2019 with a great evening of learning about animals in winter with N.H. Fish & Game Furbearer Project Leader Patrick Tate. Tate will be talking all about hibernation and other strategies furry creatures employ to survive the winter.

Come out of your own winter cover to learn about the seven wildlife species in New Hampshire that go into some kind of winter slumber, and the three that are “true hibernators.” We’ll hear all about winter survival strategies of our furry friends and which among them is best at sleeping the cold months away.

This event is free and open to the public and donations are welcome and gladly accepted. The program is geared toward adults and older children, but all are welcome. Save your spot by pre-registering at http://www.act-nh.org/education-events.
