Living with Snow, or How Animals Live in a Frozen World – Saturday, January 20th

Join Gerry Racey for a winter hike at the Cedar Creek Conservation Reserve.  We will snowshoe through different forest environments, examine snow conditions, identify animal tracks and develop an appreciation for how northern animals, birds and plants cope with the snow and the winter environment.  Snowshoes are required.  Bring a hearty lunch, water, and dress appropriately for the winter conditions considering level of physical exertion, wind and temperature.  The hike will only proceed if daytime highs are forecast to be above -18oC.  Please notify Gerry Racey (807-939-1620; gdracey(at)tbaytel(dot)net) of your intent to participate.  Meet at the Movati Centre, form car pools, and depart at 10:00 am for the Conservation Reserve, approximately a 40 minute drive.
