8:00 am – 12:00 noon
Tuition: $40 Materials: $4
Winter is the best time to explore the Northwoods in search of wildlife sign. Discover what mammal species are awake and active during winter in northeastern Minnesota and learn how to identify their tracks and sign to interpret activity.
We will begin with an indoor presentation on identification of mammals through habitat types, track patterns and track sizes then, head outdoors in the field in search of mammal activity. You may carpool with your fellow mammals. Wear appropriate outdoor clothing for the weather, including snowshoes if snow conditions require them, water and snacks as desired.
This class is appropriate for ages 8 and up; youth under 18 must be accompanied by a paid adult.
This class is also offered on Tuesday, Feb. 6. Classes can be arranged on request at other times for groups of 4 to 10.
