PARKS CANADA PROGRAM: Winter Survival for Animals and Snowshoeing - This program takes place at the Monarch Campground in Yoho National Park. The presenter will lead a discussion about hibernating and non-hibernating animals and birds that migrate and birds that survive Rocky Mountain winters. Students will be able to kick up their heels on their snowshoes in the crisp mountain air while observing nature in winter. We will follow animal tracks in the snow, learn winter survival skills, and end the day with some fun snowshoe games.
