Ever wondered how some animals can just walk on top of snow without falling through? Well, now you can find out — and try it for yourself — during a winter ecology snowshoe workshop. DNS naturalists will lead the snowshoe workshop and natural history hike. Naturalists will cover different natural history topics each month during the winter, so you will not only get out on a great snowshoe hike but also learn about how animals adapt in winter, snow science, tracking and more. To register, email sally@durangonaturestudies.org or call 970-769-1800. You can also register online.
