Wildlife Tracking in Winter

Following tracks in the snow during February Vacation Week

Curious about the critters that leave "footprints" on snow-covered yards and fields? Our naturalists can help you solve the mystery!

At one time, being able to read animal tracks was vital for survival. Today, identifying signs of wildlife can teach us a lot about the animals that live in our area.

Join us for a tracking program, or try practicing around your neighborhood with the aid of our free resources. The more experience you get, the faster you'll learn how to distinguish the markings of deer, porcupines, fishers, foxes, bears, moose, and more. 

Before you know it, you'll be on your way to becoming a tracking expert!
