[ No Need To Hibernate ]

sledhilldtJust because it’s cold and/or snowy outside, that’s no excuse to crawl under the covers and hibernate.

There are lots of ways to explore nature in all its winter glory, right here in Madison!

The UW Arboretum has educational and fun programs year-round. Educational lectures offer a wide variety of topics–from monarch butterfly migration, the nature of snow and more. And if you want to get outside and tromp around a bit, they always have nature walks led by arboretum naturalists. More info here.

The City of Madison offers plenty of winter opportunities as well. Even if there isn’t a lot of snow on the ground, they make snow at Elver Park so you can skate, sled and ski to your heart’s content. More info about Madison outdoor winter fun here.

Don’t feel like freezing your tootsies off? You can still get in touch with nature indoors at Olbrich Botanical Gardens. Browse the gardens or enjoy some tunes during their winter concert series. More details here.
