Volume One Special Coverage: Pulling Together While Staying Apart

Winter is for Families:
I Really Like This Track

If your kids are really into animals, a perfect game that takes almost no preparation is out in your yard or nearby park. Look near bird feeders, gardens, or tall grass for animal tracks in the snow. Try to decipher what they might be. Your dog, a bird, a deer, a yeti, or the evasive and rarely seen Tarantupotomus? Follow them until the kids get bored, or you wander into a bear den.

P.S. If you’re one of the unfortunate souls whose yard has very little wildlife tracks, throw your kids off by making strange tracks out of plywood to slip on the bottoms of their shoes.

Who’s Been Here? Winter Tracking for Kids February 27 • Beaver Creek Reserve, Fall Creek • 9:30 and 11:30am • $5 friends, $8 nonmembers • A naturalist will guide kids on an outdoor tour of track identification that includes making a plaster cast of a track to take home.
