Sunday, January 17th, noon. meet at My Dog Joe's in Westdale. Winter Wondering! Devon and Peter take you on a wander to wonder through the winter of Cootes Paradise! Grab your warm and cozy hats and mitts, and let's see what we can learn by looking and listening in a snowy forest grove. We will go for a hike down in Cootes Paradise, pay attention to what we notice, and we'll make a list of 'I wonders' -- for instance, "I wonder what made those tracks," "I wonder what bird that is," "I wonder where the little fish are hiding". Some questions we'll be able to answer from things we already know, some we'll be able to figure out. However, some things in the winter woods are quite mysterious, and for those things, we'll do some research and meet again the following Sunday to share whatever answers we've been able to find. Then, if you're so inclined, have some hot chocolate and skate about the lake! dress warmly, bring skates and a mug!
