How do animals survive winter’s chills? What adaptations have they developed to keep warm and find food? We’ll put ourselves in the paws of Thorn Creek’s woodland creatures and follow the trails in search of tracks and other spoor. We’ll make plaster cast tracks to take home. This program is sponsored by the Thorn Creek Audubon Society.
Registration required by Friday, February 23: 708.747.6320.
Participants should be prepared for the cold weather and be able to walk 1 mile outdoors on uneven and possibly snow-covered terrain. If weather is inclement, the program will be held inside the nature center.
