---- — ‘The Art of Nature: Hibernation’

Join watercolorist Brenda Sloane tomorrow from 1 to 3:30 p.m. in the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary’s Nature Center for a presentation highlighting the sanctuary’s hibernating and non-hibernating animals. Following the presentation, adventurers will take a walk outside and try to locate the animals mentioned. After exploring some of the sanctuary, attendees will return to the Nature Center to sculpt a clay likeness of an animal of their choice and a watercolor background illustrating its habitat. The event is suitable for families with children ages 6 to 12. The cost is $10 for adults and $8 for children; discounts are available to Mass Audubon Society members. All materials will be provided, and participants are encouraged to dress warmly for the outside portion of the program.
