A few months ago, my wife and I joined a Williamstown group connected to the West Virginia Naturalists. We are studying with guided hikes and classroom sessions to become master naturalists. Last Saturday, we drove to North Bend State Park for a session on the impact of winter weather on plants and animals. I have always wondered where all the wildlife I see during the summer go when it gets cold. I am in the woods and on the river every month of the year but there is still a lot I would like to know. At our last class, I got some answers.
