• Leave It to Beavers
Sunday, November 2nd -2:00 p.m

As daylight grows shorter and the air temperatures cool, a change of behavior is noted in beaver colonies.  After an indoor introduction on beaver natural history and adaptations, participants will walk over to the large pond in hopes of observing some activity by the resident beavers.  Participants will also keep a watchful eye for herons, ducks, mink and other interesting pond life.  Everyone should dress for cool weather walk.  A limited number of binoculars are available for use.

• Feeding Our Feathered Friends
Sunday, November 16th -2:00 p.m

Late autumn and winter is a wonderful time for people to become acquainted with the avian friends who share all our seasons of the year.  Feeding Our Feathered Friends features a slide presentation and talk with naturalist Pat Carney to introduce the real snow birds and local song birds that endure the rigors of winter with us.  Birds’ habitat, foraging techniques and seed preferences will be discussed.  Following the indoor program, the group will talk a short wander along the trails to look for some of these feathered friends.
