Insects in Winter

Saturday, December 10, 2016 - 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Join Karin from the Royal Botanical Gardens to learn how insects survive in cold winter climates. Except for a few that migrate, most of the insects of spring, summer, and fall are still around in the winter. The question is where and how do they survive the cold? They are actually all around us, but we have to look carefully. What’s fascinating is what changes happen to them to enable them to withstand Canada’s cold winters. Can you find any insect ice cubes?

 
The target audience for this program is children and families.
