Winter Wildlife ID and Tracking

Animal tracks on sparkling snow
Meet the animals that prowl our woods and ponds all winter long. We rarely see them—mink, beaver, coyote, and deer—but they are here.  Learn the names and habits of the mammals that call northern Illinois home in the winter and follow them around the Arboretum and learn to read the messages they leave behind: tracks, scat, gnawings, tunnels, and burrows. Different animals will be covered in each section; sign up for one or for both for a more complete picture of Illinois wildlife!

Instructor: Renae Frigo, naturalist
Notes: Held outdoors. Please dress for extended outdoor explorations. Limit 15.
