Kids investigate wildlife's winter adaptations


BRICE PRAIRIE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Spring is just around the corner, and wildlife will be migrating back to our area...or coming out of hibernation.

While waiting for their homecoming, the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge hosted an event Feb. 23 to teach kids how animals survive the harsh winter months.

The event included a presentation given by a ranger, as well as a hike in the prairie to try and spot some of those animals.

Another family-friendly event is planned there March 2. The Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge will team up with the Myrick Park Ecopark, the Sierra Club, area colleges, and other organizations in celebration of conservationist Aldo Leopold.

On Saturday, the visitor center will have guided prairie walks and nature journaling tutorials starting at 11 a.m.

All events are free and open to the public.
