Stories in the Snow: Vermont Wildlife in the Winter

At Robinson Elementary in Starksboro we have a very exciting workshop running this session. As part of our Fieldstone Conservation Grant, we are running a 4 week Winter Tracking/Animal Habitats workshop with Medora Plimpton and Ruth Beecher. Students are exploring the world of Vermont wildlife in winter. Each class they learn what animals are doing to adapt and survive the harsh northern weather. Students spend the majority of time outdoors finding clues to better understand the daily lives of our local feathered and furred inhabitants. Below are some pictures of students identifying tracks and recording what they see and find on tracking ID cards. Awesome!

Stay tuned for an update about the students recent trip to the Audubon Center!
