Springtime, when the ground is moist or lightly covered with snow, is a perfect time to see animal tracks and the conditions also allow for easy hiking. There's a good chance of finding moose, elk, deer, rabbit, squirrel, and other small rodent tracks as we explore stream banks and meadows. If we're lucky, we could also spot coyote, porcupine, bear, mountain lion, and bobcat. We'll investigate the particular characteristics, size, age, and direction of travel of the tracks we see, as well as look at scat and how it relates to the animal identification process. Students will be notified where to meet before class.
