The weather may be gray and gloomy, even for our area. However, that isn’t an excuse to stay inside. Producer Andy Kubis, determined to find joy in this cold season, headed out for a winter hike with Gabi Hughes, an environmental educator for the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania at Beechwood Farms Nature Reserve, north of Pittsburgh. Their aim: To find out what there is to see and hear in nature this time of year.
