“January Thaw,” an essay found in Leopold’s A Sand County Almanac, kicks off this program as an introduction to how “trackers” read the landscape to discover the secret lives of animals. Students will discover the skills of observation and inference as we search for types of animal signs, learn typical track pattern classification, and hit the trails to uncover the stories the land can tell. Skins and skulls are included in this program. Great for a winter program! Partners well with Snowshoe Science.
