This first-hand encounter with live falcons, hawks and owls focuses on the natural history, ecology and adaptations of these efficient predators. Participants learn what adaptations make a bird a raptor.
Winter Wild is an uphill series with a twist. Make your way to the top and then ski down to the finish at the bottom. Grab your skis or snowboard, grab your snowshoes, or just grab your favorite winter running shoes and join us for some winter fun. Do you like first tracks? This events take place on Okemo and you get to hit slopes before they open to the public. What's not to like about that! The activity is called “uphilling,” and it’s adding a whole new dimension of fun and purpose to winter recreation. Uphilling is a hearty winter workout, where participants ascend a ski slope using either snowshoes, skis with climbing “skins,” or running shoes with "microspikes". You might say it’s an activity that’s people-powered rather than machined-powered. For the Winter Wild series, participants go down the mountain the same way they went up – those on skis get to slide down the slopes.
