Animal Tracks and Traces - Hudson Highlands Nature MuseumCornwall, N.Y. – On Sunday, January 28 at 10 a.m., come to the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum’s Outdoor Discovery Center, on Muser Drive, across from 174 Angola Road, to search for Animal Tracks and Traces. 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 (*participants must bring their own plain white pre-washed T-shirt.)  According to Environmental Educator Carl Heitmuller you’ll 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 for adults and families with children ages 3 and older. Admission: Adults/$7, Children/$5 Museum Members: Adults/$5, Children/$3. After attending this program, enjoy FREE same day admission to the Wildlife Education Center. For information visit www.hhnm.org or call 845-534-5506, ext. 204.
