If you’re like me, it’s always a bit difficult to let go of the autumn season when you know that six (or more) months of cold and snow wait on the other side. When I first set out to create this winter nature study, I researched all I could about the flora and fauna this time of year, and was pleasantly surprised to find that there is SO much going on out there under the dirt, snow and ice.
In tree hollows, burrows and sheltered among the trees, the outdoors is bursting with life – even if it’s a little harder to spot.
This winter we’ll be studying the animals that tuck away for the season, and those that brave it. We’ll be learning about the plants that sleep and those that keep right on producing.
My family and I are looking forward to exploring everything nature has to offer this winter – and we’ll be using the new Winter Journal to help us.
We’ll be taking a deep dive into the following subjects:
- Winter Trees
- Winter Birds
- Wintry Weather
- The Winter Night Sky
- Foraging in the Winter Woods
I hope you and your family are able to get out this winter and do some exploring!
