Staying warm when it is below zero

A fun way to stay warm in the winter is to build small, all-natural structures that block the wind. That way, whenever you’re out hiking and exploring, you have a cozy den as a destination to snug up inside. This quinzee is easy to find if you’re at the Indian Creek Nature Center. The leaf tipi is also at the Nature Center-you’ll just have to go on a longer adventure to discover it.

The quinzee mound is made in the shape of a turtle, and the doorway is carved out

And digs out a bit more space for us, so a few people can fit inside
