Join us for a full day of Wild Animal Tracking at our magnificent Boreal Forest Adventure Center. Learn how to read animal tracks and sign to determine what animals are in your area. Discover methods to quickly and effectively identify animal tracks, follow animal trails, interpret animal movements, and relate what we find to animal biology and behavior.
