Forest Play Group @ CREA: Squirrels In Winter

February 2, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am


Join the Southern Midcoast Forest Playgroup at CREA!

Families will meet at the parking area to the Cathance River Nature Preserve for a morning of exploring the Barnes Leap trail and CREA Ecology Center. We’ll read Squirrels Busy Year by Martin Jenkins, then head out on a short hike to discover what these furry friends eat and where they live in these cold winter months!

This is a drop-in program, registration is not required to attend. We will meet rain, snow or shine!

Families do not need to bring anything but themselves and appropriate attire based on location and weather. We do recommend that you bring water and snacks for your family. 

The trails may be slippery and icy – everyone should wear snow gear and have good winter footwear! 

The Southern Midcoast Forest Playgroup is a free, parent-facilitated program that aims to provide a space for like aged-children to explore, learn, and interact outside. Their branch will meet every Thursday at 9:30am at different locations in the Southern Midcoast region.  Weekly adventures are typically posted the Sunday or Monday before the adventure on their Facebook page.
