"Wild Safari" No stuffed animals will be harmed during this adventure; off to the wilds of Retzer, as we hunt for the untamed creatures hidden along the trails.
Families & Scouts Fee: $5.00 Register by: Friday, January 6 Animal tracks are important clues but nibbled branches, stray animal fur, or scat makes these clues all significant to the story they tell. Participants will learn how to identify the tracks for different animal species, and read the animal's activities. We will even learn how to move the way different animals do in order to make certain kinds of tracks. When you learn to read the signs, it's like being let in on little secrets of animals life.
Adults/ Families & Scouts Fee: $5.00 Register by Friday prior to program date Winter is a great time to get out and explore the environment, and snowshoes are a fun way to do it. Join a Retzer Naturalist as you trek the trails in the silent world of winter on snowshoes. The program will emphasize wildlife tracks and signs and recreational snowshoeing as you connect to your winter surroundings.
