Just how do our local plants and animals survive the changing of the seasons and life in the cold? Winter can be a tough time, but our resourceful species have a whole tool box of strategies for survival. Enjoy this easy hike and exploration with OSMP Naturalist Dave Sutherland. Bring water, snacks and appropriate clothes, depending on whatever weather greets us that day. Strap-on traction for footwear (e.g. micro-spikes or Yak-tracks) is a must, since the trail may be very slick and icy. All ages welcome. Meet at the Shanahan Ridge trail access point at 1903 Lehigh Street in Boulder, where Lehigh and Lafayette Streets meet. Free parking is available along the street.
