Field Trip: Winter on Snowshoes

January 19, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:55 pm

Saturday, January 19, 2019– Winter on Snowshoes. Snow transforms the landscape into stories that unfold as we follow tracks of foxes, mice, and other mammals. A Snowshoe Hare hops along and is pounced on by a Great Horned Owl. Without snow to show us the tracks, wing marks, and perhaps a drop of blood, we would not have known the drama took place. Soren Bondrup-Nielsen (902) 582-3971 will lead this hike on snowshoes or skis, and we will explore the properties of snow (its insulative value, for example). By studying the characteristic imprints made by different organisms we will interpret the various stories that have unfolded. Meet at the Wolfville waterfront at 10 a.m. for a two-hour, non-strenuous hike at a nearby location to be determined by weather and snow conditions.
