From 9am until 10:30am

Snow provides us a yearly opportunity to learn more about our animal neighbors. The track patterns left behind will be our window into figuring out: Who left those tracks?  What were they doing? Were they in a hurry? Dr. Rick Van de Poll will help explore these snowy riddles.

Participants will head out into the fields and woods behind Tin Mountain Conservation Center and practice field identification of mammal sign. Special emphasis will be given to habitat and behavior, and back-tracking exercises will clarify habits and haunts of the animals we encounter. A wrap-up session at the end will reinforce basic concepts and discuss conservation measures for the species. Participants should dress for the weather, bring a lunch.
