At one time, being able to read tracks was vital for survival. Tracking is more than simply finding a trail and following it and prints aren't always necessary to track an animal. The forest is full of signs that tell us about the wildlife within. Learn to read the tracks and signs left by animals that live in our area. (This walk is being offered on two different dates.)
