All about bears, squirrels, gophers

“Do mice hibernate?” 4½-year-old Maia Maestas asked volunteer naturalist Connie Hauver.

Maia and other youngsters were gathered around Hauver for a Preschool Nature Nuts program at Lookout Mountain Nature Center last Thursday.

Mice don’t hibernate like bears and other creatures during the wintertime, Hauver said.
