Mass Audubon Schedules Vacation Week programs

LENOX, Mass. - Mass Audubon has scheduled programs for both February school vacation - Winter Adventure Vacation Week - and April school vacation - Spring Explorers Vacation Week.

Winter Adventure Vacation Week will run from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. from Monday, Feb. 17, through Friday, Feb. 21, at Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary, 472 West Mountain Road, in Lenox. Instructors will be Max Galdos-Shapiro, the Berkshire Sanctuaries education coordinator, and naturalist Zach Adams. Suitable for children ages 7 to 12, the week will help children learn about wildlife that stays active in the cold and snow, and the adaptations that enable them to survive. Depending on the conditions, kids will build snow shelters and snowshoe or hike to "secret" parts of the sanctuary. Children should dress for the weather, with warm outerwear and waterproof boots required, and bring a lunch and two snacks each day.

Explore our forests, ponds, and wetlands for new plant growth, early bird arrivals, and emerging amphibians and reptiles. Children should dress for the weather; mud boots are a must. Bring a lunch and two snacks each day.
