Preparing for Winter
September 19, 2011
I have a giant walnut tree in my backyard, and for weeks every autumn, I can hear the click, clack, roll of nuts as they drop off the tree and travel across my roof. Fat squirrels perch themselves around the yard and gather the nuts, leaving a trail of shells in their wake. What are they doing? Are they just making a mess (yes!), or do they know something is coming?
Where do the animals go during the winter? How do they forage for food? Come to the Dearborn Branch on Thursday, September 22, 2011 at 4:00 p.m. and find out. Learn how all animal types survive the cold months, and even meet a live animal! Maybe I can discover what my squirrels are up to!
