What do snowshoe hares, lynx, ptarmigan, and caribou all have in common? Their feet! These common Yukon animals all have adaptations that help them travel in snowy conditions. Humans, on the other hand, aren’t so lucky, so we had to get creative and invent new ways to travel during the winter.
Join Claire as we learn about the ways humans (and other animals of course) walk across the snowy landscapes. We will explore animal tracks, learn about importance of the design of animal’s feet, and even make a mini snowshoe to take home.
So, this Sunday, take out your snowshoes and trudge on over to Beringia Centre, and learn how those unwieldy contraptions called snowshoes work in both humans and animals.
All ages welcome, but children under 10 may need help from an adult. Regular admission applies. Claire will have two demonstrations at 1 PM and 3 PM.
Can’t wait to see you!
