When winter arrives, where do wild animals go? Bring your children, ages 4 to 8, to Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge from 1 PM to 2 PM and find out. Listen to a winter story, enjoy a short nature walk with a ranger, and create an edible decoration for the birds and animals! Children must be accompanied by an adult. Reservations are required. Call (718) 318-4340 between 9 AM and 5 PM for information and to make a reservation. Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, a unit of Gateway National Recreation Area, is located in Queens between Howard Beach and Broad Channel.
