It may not feel like winter weather right now, but the forecast shows that snow is in the future in Hannibal.

The next nature program offered by Hannibal Parks & Recreation will be about snow. The Wonder of Snow will be 2-3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8 at the Admiral Coontz Recreation Center. Hannibal Parks & Recreation interpreter guide Gale Rublee will lead the program. She said she will help youngsters discover the magic of snowy weather. “ Why does it snow? What shapes do snow crystals take? We will explore the wonder of snow and make a snowflake mobile. “

The event is indoors but some time will be spent outdoors depending on the weather.

Rublee has more than 25 years of experience as a nature educator. She is a founding member of the Mississippi Hills Master Naturalists chapter in Hannibal and is coordinator and teacher for the Bluff City Theater Youth Education in Theater Initiative.
