The Department of Conservation and Recreation and MassWildlife are offering you a week of wintry wildlife exploration!

On February 18 and 19, the staff of MassWildlife will be holding a county show in Danvers where you can learn tips about how best to interact with the wildlife in your neighborhood.  Come with specific questions for our experts or just an open-minded interest and take a look around at what we have to offer. 

Hopefully, we will have some snow for a sledding party in Wellesley!  If there is not an adequate amount of snow for this snow-centered activity, we can still all join up for a winter campfire taking place in South Carver.  On Saturday bring your little ones to Nature’s Mysteries, a learning exploration at Breakheart Reservation in Saugus about the lives of adult animals.  This will be an hour-long session, best for children ages 5-11.  The class is offered both at 10am and 1pm.
