The air is cold, and the woods have gone silent. Nature is tucked away for the next few months, in a long slumber waiting for the return of longer days and warmer nights. Right?! No! Nature is alive and vibrant and just as amazing in winter as she is in spring, summer, and fall. We just need to know what to look for. Come outside with us to explore nature in the colder months of the year. Naturalist Keith Williams will lead a wintertime exploration of Climbers Run Nature Center. Who knows what we will find?
