Welcome to the coastal wonderland of the Eastern Shore in winter, a place delightfully different from its warm-weather self. Learn about winter constellations and winter tree identification. Warm yourself by a campfire and listen to stories (nature-related fairy tales) while you roast marshmallows. Migrating birds abound and snow-covered beaches yield a bounty of shells. Come explore the shore during this special time of year.

The “Winter Animal Adaptations and Survival Program” explains hibernation, migration, and adaptation. Learn about how animals, birds, and marine organisms all deal with the chill.
