What animals might live in the Oxbow National Wildlife Refuge? How do they survive in the cold, ice, and snow of winter? Join Nashua River Watershed Association (NRWA) Naturalists for a free “Super Saturday Winter Wildlife Exploration” Saturday, February 1, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Bill Ashe Visitor Center at the Oxbow National Wildlife Refuge, 80 Hospital Road, in Devens. Starting indoors at the Bill Ashe Visitor Center, there will be hands-on activity tables for close examination of mounts, skins, skulls, and tracks from animals found at the Oxbow National Wildlife Refuge. Participants will learn how these animals survive during a New England winter season. Additionally, join a guided hike to look for tracks and other signs of animal activity in the area.
