Winter Ecology Series

Wednesdays, January 11, 18 & 25
Join Director of Education Tom Finley for a three-part winter ecology series exploring the beauty of winter at Schlitz Audubon. On each date, we’ll focus on a new topic and visit a different habitat. They will all showcase aspects of winter ecology, as well as explore some of the many characteristics of animal and plant survival during this time of scarcity in the natural world. A winter landscape can be both a beautiful and harsh environment, worthy of our respect and understanding.
