Hyg·ge: a Danish winter tradition, bringing a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders contentment and wellbeing. In honor of the winter solstice and fostering hygge for the holidays, Drew McCarthy discusses some of Yellowstone’s wild winter denizens that have mastered the darkest, coldest season of the year with resourcefulness and style. Winter is a difficult time for some animals, prompting some to migrate, while others fortify and simply endure. In this presentation, Drew highlights several winter specialists that seem to thrive in the dark, frigid winter months: the wolverine, ermine, pika, beaver, and white-winged ptarmigan. Learn about them, and let their resilience inspire you to face the months ahead.
