Course Description

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.

Course number



Renae Frigo, naturalist
