The Secret Life of Porcupines: NRWA Family Workshop

Did you know that porcupines are getting ready for winter, just like us? Where do porcupines spend the winter, how do they stay warm, do they need to eat or do they hibernate?  These are a few of the questions that will be answered during the Nashua River Watershed Association's family workshop "Discover the Secret Life of Porcupines" Saturday, Nov. 7, 1-3 p.m., at the Williams Barn, 160 Chicopee Row, Groton.

Come explore a porcupine den and see where they spend the winter. You'll be able to touch and examine porcupine "hair", touch porcupine claws, listen to porcupine vocalizations, and make a pine cone porcupine to take home. This presentation does include a short hike on the lovely trails of the historic Williams Barn. 

This presentation does not include live animals, unless we see one out on the trail. Dress with warm layers and boots. 

Led by Mary Marro, NRWA's Environmental Education Director, this program is appropriate for all ages, but geared especially to children and families.

Fee: $8/person or $24/family for NRWA members; $10/person or $30/family for non-members. Pre-registration required by calling NRWA (978) 448-0299, or email
