Discover the amazing—and sometimes strange—adaptations that allow cold-blooded animals to survive harsh winters. With live animal ambassadors from the Tenafly Nature Museum, learn about a variety of body coverings, and the relationship between their needs and the places they live. An environmental educator from the Museum reveals strategies that cold-blooded creatures, including snakes and turtles, use to survive both cold and warm temperatures. Gain a respect for reptiles and amphibians while discovering how people are similar to, and different from, each species. Appropriate for ages six and older with an adult companion. Hibernators Weekend event.

This event meets in Wave Hill House’s Armor Hall, located on the ground floor of the House.

Registration not required. Space is limited.
