Auburn -

OLD TOWN -  The Hirundo Wildlife Refuge invites you to join us at our family-oriented Winter-Spring Ecology series on from 12:15-3:00 p.m. Sundays, Jan. 23, Feb. 27, March 27 at 15 Hudson Rd. in Old Town. Come early, bring a lunch, and enjoy our heated shelter at Lac D’Or that opens at 11am.
January 23: Identify Animal Tracks Join wildlife ecologist Bucky Owen, hailed by Old Town 2nd graders: “He made identifying leaves fun!” as he snowshoes through Hirundo’s beautiful winter scenery, speaking about seasonal animal and plant adaptations while looking for animal tracks. February 27: Winter Tree Identification Learn Winter Tree Identification using twigs and other clues with botanist Gudrun Keszöcze in Hirundo’s forest communities. March 27: Signs of Spring Although it is technically spring by March 27, we still might have snow.  This will not deter biologist Dick Andren searching for “Signs of Spring” along the trails and stream bank.
