Fall Session 1: Family Nature-Mapping|
New Mexico has wonderful territory where wild animals live. When we take hikes in nature, visiting wild animal homes, we may not see the wild ones who live there. Learn how to know the animals are there! Learn about what they leave behind: their tracks and sign!
