Stories from Snowflakes Program Scheduled at WMCC

LITCHFIELD — White Memorial Conservation Center has posted its calendar of events for January, 2021. All of the programs are via Zoom or Facebook Live. Stories that Snowflakes Tell with Tom Alena is planned for 3 p.m. Saturday, January 9. Every snowflake is created with almost miraculous precision inside the clouds above. Their final shape as they land on a coat or tongue is a result of complex temperature and moisture patterns they encounter on their journey to the ground.

This program details how the snow crystal forms in the air above and why it takes on a variety of shapes. 

Participants will learn how to capture and photograph snow crystals and have tons of fun cutting out actual paper models of real snow crystals.

There is a fee, pre-registration is required at

A link will be emailed the day before the event.
