    The Sleepy Groundhog

    This free family program for pre-k children and their parents combines all the best bits of Tanglewood. We start off with some coloring and getting to know one another, then our Naturalist Ian will read a nature story. Meet an animal that relates to the picture book, and adventure around our museum exhibits to get those winter wiggles out! The story and the animal will change every week, so make your winter Wednesdays wonderful with us from November through March.


    • 04 Feb 2015
    • 3:30 PM - 4:45 PM
    • Tanglewood Nature Center and Museum
      

    A free program open to all ages!

     

    Meet inside the nature center with Tricia, then head out for a themed hike that will get your heart pumping. The goal is to get outside and observe a world that we are all to often oblivious to, as we spend the winter rushing to and from heated buildings and cars.

     

    Week One: Who's still active? (concept challenge)

     

    • During this session our goal will be to find evidence that many animals are still out and about, despite the cold.
    • Each sign may give us clues about what kinds of animals are still active, but more importantly, we might be able to determine what the animal was doing when it left that sign (looking for food, taking shelter, etc.)
    • As we walk we may also discuss the animals are no longer active. How do some animals manage to avoid going out in the bitter cold?  

     

    This hike is led by Tricia, a Tanglewood volunteer with extensive environmental education experience. She has worked as a naturalist at Friends of the Five Rivers in Elmar, NY and at the Klamath Bird Observatory in Ashland, OR.

    Week Two: trees (identification challenge) 

    •    
    • We often think that trees look dead orugly in the winter, but if we look closely they are really quite remarkable! With guides to trees in winter, our group will work together to see how many tree species we can identify
    • We will talk about the notable tree species in the region: the sugar maple (our state tree!) that gives us maple syrup, the ash trees that are threatened, and the oaks that feed so many of our native wildlife
    • If we look closely, we may even realize that our winter trees are not entirely without leaves. Many spent last summer and fall preparing buds so that as soon as the sun is strong enough and the risk of heavy ice and snow has faded, they can start harvesting sunlight. I wonder if the rabbits and deer have found any of these tasty buds...

    Week Three: tracks and scat and winter birds (identification challenge) 

    •    
    •  
    • Depending on the weather and the interests of the group, we will either set out to identify tracks and scat or birds
    • For birds: we will try to discuss some of the natural history of the birds we seem especially what they eat and how they deal with the cold in the winter
    • For tracks and scat: what can the shape of a track or the contents of scat tell us about the way the animal who left it interacts with the world

    Week Four: the energy challenge (concept challenge) 

    •    
    • The idea of this session is to understand the blance winter-active animals must find between conserving energy, finding food, and staying warm. Tricia will have a game to simulate this challenge, and players will have bouts of exercise, rest, and yes - snacks
    • This session will hopefully bring together the themes of our previous hikes as the concept of energy balance can be applied to the animals that are active here, and those who migrate or go dormant. This can even include plants!

     

    This hike is led by Tricia, a Tanglewood volunteer with extensive environmental education experience. She has worked as a naturalist at Friends of the Five Rivers in Elmar, NY and at the Klamath Bird Observatory in Ashland, OR.
