Boston Nature Center - February Vacation Week Program: Winter Works!

The largest snowflake was fifteen inches across. One inch of rain is equal to ten inches of snow. Learn about the amazing science behind winter. How does the water in trees keep from freezing? How do animals survive buried underneath a foot of snow? Children will explore winter nature through hands-on investigations, art projects, games, and more.
