HOLDERNESS – Squam Lakes Natural Science Center offers a winter program for adults and families with children ages 6 and up. The Wild Winter Walk is guided tour of the live animal trail on Friday, March 2, from 10 a.m.-noon.
Learn about the animals who live at the Science Center during the winter. Most of them stay in the same place, just as they would in the wild. A staff naturalist will lead a guided walk on the live animal exhibit trail to see the animal ambassadors dressed in their winter coats and discuss how these native animals are well-adapted for winter in New Hampshire. If needed, snowshoes are available at no extra cost or participants can bring their own. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Dress to be outdoors with snow boots, hats, gloves, and warm layers.
That same day, you may enjoy Animals in Winter, from 1-2 p.m. Winter means cold, ice, snow, and shorter days. How do New Hampshire animals survive these conditions? Participants will see three live animals up close and find out about various adaptations they use to successfully cope with the stresses of winter.
Cost is $8/member; $10/non-member for each program, or both for $11/member; $15/non-member
