When to help and when to let live? With cold weather quickly approaching – bringing with it a shortage of food and even water – join Naturalist Karie Wheaton to learn what we should and shouldn’t do to help our wild friends this winter.
Helping Wildlife in Winter will take place Sunday, November 4th, 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at The West Woods Nature Center in Russell Township.
Naturalist Karie says the program will cover the strategies that different animals have to survive the winter cold. “Understanding this will lead us to different strategies that we can use to help wildlife in our backyards survive our brutal Northeast Ohio winters,” she said. “There are folks that have good intentions when it comes to helping wildlife, but their actions could actually be harmful! Being informed and doing the right thing can help make a difficult season a little easier on our wild backyard neighbors.”
The nature center is fully accessible, and registration is not required to attend. This is a commonly called-upon topic at the nature center each winter. Please don’t hesitate to bring any questions you may have in advance of the chilly weather to come!
