Seeds, pods, nests, cocoons, tracks…there’s LOTS to see in winter, you just need to keep your eyes open! Visit Prince Gallitzin State Park to search for the things that are often overlooked during the other seasons of the year. The greenery and colors of spring, summer, and fall hide these winter wonders of the plant and animal world, but once your eyes adjust to the “brownery” of winter, you will be able to find many interesting things that are all around you. We will meet at the Park Office in Prince Gallitzin State Park to begin the field trip.
