Hike: Nature Detectives – Kids’ Tracks & Skat
Tired of being trapped indoors? Are your kids in need of an activity to burn off pent-up energy? Gather up your family and head outside to breathe in some crisp fresh air! GSWA Education Associate, Dan Ross, is leading a family-friendly adventure through the snowy forest where you, our nature detectives, will seek out signs of animal behaviors, and the telltale traces they leave behind. Everyone will be on the lookout for animal tracks, working together to identify the various critters, and discover where the tracks may lead. We will also talk about their winter-time activities, and some of the ways they endure throughout the coldest months of the year, in anticipation of the spring thaw. Fun for all ages. Please remember to dress for the weather. Waterproof boots are strongly encouraged. Bring a snack and water if you like. This event is free for GSWA members, non-members: suggested donation of $10 for adults 18 and over/$5 for children 6-17 years. Registration is required. Sign-up online or call 973-538-3500.
