Guided Late Fall Hike – How Nature Prepares for Winter

The Blomidon Naturalists Society is hosting a group hike to explore a beautiful trail in Wolfville. We will discuss and learn about the various ways nature prepares for winter.

What: During this two hour fieldtrip along the Wolfville Millennium Trail we will explore how and why the leaves of deciduous trees change colour in the fall and drop to the ground, why some birds migrate south while others stay around during the winter, why chipmunks are not seen during winter while voles and shrews remain active, the strategies of various flowering plants to survive winter and much more!
