As the autumn progresses, wild animals begin their preparations for the cold seasons. Those that spend much of the winter underground begin refurbishing dens and tunnels as well as storing food such as seeds, nuts and acorns. Those that spend the winter above ground, start putting on underlayers of fur as insulation against the approaching cold. Although the fall and winter may seem dead, much activity continues under cover of darkness, and this activity leaves traces for the tracker to find, identify and interpret for the relationships between the animal and its habitat. How does the animal cope with the many changes the new season brings on? Answering this question is the ultimate goal of the observant and knowledgeable tracker. Come join us this fall and winter as we explore the cold season landscapes for the mysteries they contain.
