Texas winter is growing near, but how did they even make it to here?

Come learn how some of the stars of our East Texas ecosystem survive the harsh realities of winter. From storing food, to gaining weight, to leaving town, to simply sleeping through it – there is no limit to the ways these critters combat the cold!

- Join Ranger Jared and discover the many ways life slows down, speeds up, and hangs on as animals in East Texas hang on until the cold end of winter.

- There will be plenty of hands on show and tell examples to see and feel as we explore the countless survival strategies going on all around us in the Pineywoods this time of year.

Participants may want to bring water, appropriate clothing and footwear for the outdoors, and a strong will to survive!

Meet at the Rice Log Home!
