Spring Session 2: Family Nature-Mapping
New Mexico has wonderful territory where wild animals live. When we take hikes in nature, visiting wild animal homes, we may never see who lives there. Learn how to know the animals are there through what they leave behind: their tracks and sign! We will learn about these animal groups and the signs they leave. An opportunity to use Nature Mapping skills in the wild will be offered at the Sandia Mountain Natural History Center's First Sunday, May 6th, 2012.
1) Bear Claws and Squirrel Chewings: Mammal Sign
2) Tiny Dots and Squiggly Lines: Arthropod Markings
