Tracks and Traces: The Art and Science of Nature Observation
The Center is full of wild animals, and the best time to discover evidence of them is winter, which reveals secrets hidden during other seasons. Students learn to interpret behavior and the wildlife ecology of active winter animals. Through observation of tracks and traces along our trails, students gain an understanding of locomotion, foraging strategies, and survival adaptations of Wisconsin animals. Some animals include gray and red squirrels, coyotes, white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, and other species that call Schlitz Audubon home in the cold months.
