With some snow and mud present, now is a great time to see what has been visiting just outside your home or along one of your favorite trails. Just look for tracks!
Tracks are the footprints animals leave behind and they are best seen in mud, sand and snow. You can most likely determine the animal by asking these questions- Are there claw marks? How many toes are there? What is the size? How close are the paw prints to each other (if there are multiple)?
Look around outside and take photos of the tracks you find and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org! Here is a photo of a track found at the Highlands Center after a rainy day. Who do you think made it?
