Santa has been keeping a close eye on his reindeer, feeding them twice daily and ensuring they are ready for Christmas Eve.
Santa has been taking very good care of his reindeer and has them ready for their Christmas Eve travels. Santa can be seen feeding his reindeer by checking the online reindeer cam.
“The reindeer can be seen 24/7 on the reindeer cam until Christmas Eve, when they go off to do their important job,” said Theresa Adams, assistant education coordinator at the Greenwing Legacy Interpretive Centre in Shubenacadie. “Santa is there to feed them and interact with them at 9am and 3pm each day.”
She said that because lighting has been added to the area there has been some nice night time viewing of the animals possible through the web cam. The live feed can be seen at http://www.novascotiawebcams.com/special/reindeer-cam.html .
The wildlife park has a “12 Days of Christmas in Shubenacadie” video on YouTube featuring a unique song about, and beautiful images of, the animals who live at the park. The video can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=br9axYFimzo .
The park is open from 9am to 3pm on weekends during the winter.
The Greenwing Centre is offering some special things during the winter including snowshoeing.
“People can come out and snowshoe any weekend there is snow,” said Adams. “We have 30 pairs of snowshoes in three sizes. Visitors can try them out front if they’re beginners and if they’re comfortable they can go through some of the wetland area or in the wildlife park. There’s no charge unless they want to go into the park, and then it’s just admission.
For more information on snowshoeing at the facility call 758-5316 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .
On January 25, at 1pm, Dr Helene VanDoninck will be at the Greenwing Centre to share tips on keeping wildlife safe, and discuss her work with wildlife and the new raptor recovery enclosure at the Cobequid Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre.
