Concord, NH – Wildlife prepare for the winter in many ways, such as migrating south, eating or storing more food, and settling in to hibernate. What do you do? Here is your chance to acclimate to the colder weather by attending a three-hour workshop designed to help teachers incorporate winter wildlife ecology into their curriculum.
Educators, both formal and informal, are invited to join New Hampshire Fish and Game on December 30 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. to explore how wildlife survive New Hampshire’s winter. This workshop is for educators of children in grades K-12, and attendees will experience several hands-on activities from the Below Zero curriculum book, published by the Canadian Wildlife Federation. All participants will receive a copy of this 200-page activity guide following completion of the workshop.
Workshop attendees will learn about the different strategies New Hampshire’s wildlife employ to survive the winter and associated exercises that incorporate this information into art, math, science, and physical education lessons. This workshop will include both indoor and outdoor instruction, and participants are encouraged to dress appropriately for the day’s weather conditions.
The cost for the workshop is $20.00. Once registered, participants will receive an email with instructions on how to submit payment. A grant from the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire has helped to keep the costs for this winter’s Below Zero workshop as low as possible so that anyone interested is able to attend.
Registration is limited to 20 people and this year’s workshop will take place at New Hampshire Fish and Game Headquarters, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, NH. The indoor portion of the workshop will take place in a large conference room. Masks are highly encouraged, but not required.
