"It is very difficult to find science
topics covered for young
children. Often times presenters'
info goes over the children's
head. This was taught on their
level, they were active, so they
will retain the information."

- Andrea Stirling, Kindergarten
teacher,  HDSB

The winter snow is providing a great winter blanket for many
animals that need a deep snow cover to survive the cold. The  
true subnivean animals are small critters that stay under the
snow for most of the winter with only an occasional visit to the
top. Voles,Deer Mice, Shrews and even the larger Red Squirrel
are true subnivean dwellers.

oday I noticed a 4"-5" hole near my bird feeder. Sure enough,
after watching a bit I noticed a Red Squirrel slipping out to grab
a sunflower seed and then disappearing into the hole. He
reappeared 15 feet away near a pine tree.

There is a whole secretive world going on under the snow but all
will be reveled as the snow starts to melt and the once tunnels
appear as winding pathways. Look for these pathways and note
the tiny footprints
