Feb 11: Hibernate, Hoof It, or Hang Tough: Winter Wildlife Survival

Volunteer and attend free!

Tahoe Silicon Mountain, a local network of entrepreneurs and professionals, is pleased to welcome Will Richardson to discuss winter wildlife adaptations in his presentation: “Hibernate, Hoof It, or Hang Tough: Winter Wildlife Survival.”

Richardson will discuss how the different animals of the Tahoe ecosystem combat the elements to make it through the winter. He will delve into where animals go and what they do to survive the cold and the snow to be able to emerge again in the spring.

Richardson is the Co-founder and Executive Director for the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science and received his Ph.D. in Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation Biology from the University of Nevada, Reno, studying bird communities in Sierra Nevada aspen habitats.

Please join us at Mountain Minds Monday on Monday February 11th from 6-8pm at Pizza on the Hill, in Tahoe Donner located at 11509 Northwoods Blvd., Truckee. Pizza and salad are available and we use a pay-what-you-can model ($5 minimum). Before and after the presentation, there will be time for networking.

The event will also be available on YouTube as a livestream and after the event:
