Stroll with a Naturalist: How Nature Prepares for Winter

Join a naturalist for a casual walk on the trails of Riveredge. Each stroll will focus on a special aspect of nature but other things of interest will be explored as well. These educational programs will give you a better understanding of the flora and fauna of the nature center. You may even learn some of the history of the land too.

Ages 18+

Family Nature Club: Overwintering Insects

December 7 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Family Nature Club: Overwintering Insects

All insects have strategies to survive winter. Some migrate, like monarch butterflies and dragonflies; others’ overwinter as eggs, pupae, and larvae to continue their species, like grasshoppers; yet, others hibernate, or “diapause”, like ladybugs and wasps. We will read Bugs and Bugsicles and conduct experiments and associate insect life cycles to the seasons to understand how these small creatures survive the Wisconsin winters.

Meet at the Northern Ozaukee School Forest. Trails are gravel and easy for a stroller. Please dress warm for the weather and bring a source of light (lantern, flashlight, or headlamp).

Family Nature Club is a free offering to our community designed for kids ages 5-12 and their families. We facilitate outdoor, environmental-education based experiences for families to enjoy together.

**This event has been moved from Dec. 8th to Dec. 7th**
