Enjoy the Wild Side of Valentine’s Day!

February 12th, 2021

On Monday, we invite you to take a Valentine’s Day exploration on the Watershed Reserve!

You may spot some deer, raccoon, or fox tracks in the snow. Bring your binoculars and see if you can spot our resident red-shouldered hawk or other birds flitting and flirting near the feeders behind the Watershed Center.

With our 10-miles of trails and 950-acres for snowshoeing or X-Country skiing, there is plenty of room for wandering without worrying about being in close proximity to others. This space gives everyone time to slow down, pause, and appreciate the beauty around us.

Wintertime is also when animals engage in mating rituals that help them thrive and survive. The National Wildlife Federation has an interesting article on courting in the animal kingdom. 

On the Reserve, you may see stags in their antlers or birds doing courting rituals.

We invite you to enjoy some relaxing, unwinding time in our snowy meadows, woods, and beyond!
