This Week’s Program:
Ever wonder how a maple tree can be like a bear and a spruce like a squirrel? Come find out at our Family Hike in Belknap woods, where we’ll be exploring how trees make it through the winter. We sometimes take trees’ comfort for granted; after all, they just stand there and wave and almost never complain about the wind and rain and cold and snow and ice. We might be tempted to think there’s just not much going on for a tree in the winter, but how wrong we’d be! Trees don’t like their cells freezing any more than any animal does and if enough do freeze, they’ll die. So how are they handling life in Central New Hampshire where temperatures can drop below 0 Fahrenheit? Come play some wintry tree games and find out about the flurry of activity that goes on inside a tree as it prepares to stand in its spot all winter long.
