Wilderness Academy: The Big Freeze



Wilderness Academy is a science and project-based education designed for students aged seven and older. Each session combines educational activities and games with take-home learning extensions to help students do more in-depth exploration of related topics.

To survive the cold of winter here in Wisconsin, animals must hibernate, migrate, adapt or die. Together, we will explore the strategies used by native animals, plants and insects to survive in a frozen landscape. This program is free, and no registration is required.
