As snow blankets the prairie, there are signs of animals everywhere.  From their fresh tracks in the snow, to scat discovered near burrows, animals are constantly leaving signs for us to follow.  Join us this month as we learn how to read the signs animals leave us.  We will gain new skills throughout the month, and conclude with a chance to put our new skills to the test.  We will become animal investigators and search for the allusive coyote that calls the prairie home.

Join us on:

January 10 & 11: Animal Tracks
January 17 & 18: Animal Scat
January 24 & 25: Animal Sounds/Smells
January 31 & February 1: Tracking the coyote
