Many of us may dread the coming of a long winter due to the drop in temperature as well as our overall mood. However, winter exists for a reason! It is a time for rest, preparation, and acts as a reset button for the natural world. There are also many interesting adaptations and strategies that earth’s creatures possess in order to brave the elements and survive till the coming of spring. Unfortunately, winter may be endangered due to unprecedented rates of warming across the globe. Come learn about the wonders and secrets of this silent, snowy season and gain an appreciation for its importance.
