Search for Telltale Tracks at
The Hudson Highlands Nature Museum
Cornwall – Join the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum on Sunday, January 27 at 10am at the Outdoor Discovery Center, on Muser Drive, across from 174 Angola Road, to search for Telltale Tracks. Animals leave traces of their presence everywhere, but many people can’t recognize the evidence. Search for clues that tell the tale of who lives in the forest and what they do during the winter. Join a Museum Naturalist on a wintry walk to discover “secrets in the snow” left by winter active animals. Go on a track “hunt”, learn how to identify animal tracks, and create a *Track Shirt of your own! (*Participants interested in making a Track Shirt must bring their own plain white pre-washed T-shirt.) According to Environmental Educator Carl Heitmuller visitors learn “how to read the signs of wildlife that are there for all to see, including rubs, scrapes, footprints, chews, nests, and scat. Learn how to recognize some simple evidence that reveals who lives in your neck of the woods.” This program is recommended for adults and families with children ages 5 and older. Admission: Museum Members: Adults/$5, Children/$3. Not-yet-Members: Adults/$8, Children/$6. Enjoy FREE same-day admission to the Wildlife Education Center with paid attendance to this program.
