Hirundo Wildlife Refuge’s first Winter Family Day offers a great line-up of programs and activities for all ages and abilities. “Song in the Woods” Dogsled Adventures will be back! Everyone enjoyed the fury crew and the rides last year. Make your reservations for a trip in a dogsled early! Call 944-9259 by February 13, 2014. Karen Francoeur of Castine Kayak Adventures will initiate the newcomers to the art of cross-country skiing. We will present two environmental programs. “Survival Adaptations of Animals in Winter” introduces you to the amazing ways of how animals cope with the cold. Your skill of observation is put to the test when “Searching for Signs of Animals” during the guided trail walk. Hirundo’s Biathlon measures speed, as well as agility in a snowshoe race, and precision by throwing snowballs at a target. Tired? Take a break by the ca mpfire; warm up with hot chocolate and s’mores. Better yet, plan to spend the day. Pack a lunch and enjoy it next to the fireplace inside the shelter. We invite everyone to participate in the animal snow sculpture competition to gain local fame. If you prefer to be on your own, check out our Self-guided activities. No matter which act
UPDATE: Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Dogsled event will not be taking place, sorry for any inconvenience.
