An Adventure With The Kawartha Wilds Tracking Club

Craig Brant from Kawartha Wilds Tracking Club showed us how to identify tracks in the snow. 

Kawartha Wilds Tracking Club and 14 other people met at the Environment Centre recently to explore the nearby trails. The beauty of the adventure was taking the time to slow down and take a closer look at just how many animals had walked through the freshly fallen snow. By looking at the distance between tracks and the width of the indentation, we were able to identify the tracks of songbirds, mice, deer, grouse, fox and an ermine. Kawartha Wilds Tracking Club goes out once a month to identify tracks and record what biodiversity exists around us.
