Animal Tracks and Tracking, Feb. 3

TraxxAnimals leave tracks everywhere they go. It takes a keen eye to notice them and a little knowledge to know what they are. Visit Parma Woods as we will take a closer look at animal tracks and the animals that leave their footprints in Missouri. We will make some tracks of our own then go find some animal tracks, so dress for the weather.

Sunday, February 3, 9:00 a.m. – noon.
