The term hibernation is used regularly, but also often incorrectly when discussing the natural world. As naturalists it is often hard to present an accurate picture of hibernation, even with an accurate definition. By looking at numbers such as body weight, heart rate, and body temperature of various Minnesota mammals, we are able to gain a better understanding what hibernation is and the diversity of forms that it takes. Join Naturalist Mick Garrett at Dodge Nature Center's Olivia Irvine Dodge Library and History Center for an in-depth analysis of hibernation.

The course cost is $20 and includes course manuals and supplies.
