chipmunk

Do you ever wonder what the animals you see in summer do in the winter? You might see a deer, some squirrels, a few birds (often different ones from the summer birds), but what about the animals you don’t see?  What do other mammals, birds, frogs, snakes, fish, even lobsters, do to get through the winter?  Migrate? Hibernate? Hide and hope not to get eaten or starve before spring?  Freeze?  Antifreeze? Alan Pinder, professor and researcher from Dalhousie University will join us for a discussion of alternative ways to get through winter. Wear some floor-friendly clothes.
