Wild in the Winter

Come explore our forested and frosty winter wonderland over school break! Embark on two-day adventures of animal ecology exploration, searching for signs and secrets that are only uncovered in the winter landscape, discover how animals adapt, survive, and move through one of the most beautiful seasons at Winter Break Camp with Portland Audubon!

Wild in the Winter Have you ever wondered how animals survive the harsh winters? How do they find food in the snow or stay warm when temperatures drop below freezing? How do they know where or when to migrate? Spend the afternoon at Portland Audubon getting all of your questions about animal winter survival answered as we play games, look at specimens and hike the sanctuary, exploring the amazing world of animal survival!
