Tracks & Telltales

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

An outdoor adventure for the whole family! We’ll hike the dune trails, where we’ll be sure to see tracks – snow or no snow! We’ll learn to read what tracks can tell us: are these footprints from a feline, or a canine? Was this animal running or walking? In which direction? Investigating the trail for tracks and telltales, we’ll piece together evidence that will help us see the story in the landscape. Bring your sharp senses and your skills of observation! We’ll end the hike with cookies and hot chocolate.

This walk encompasses a loop of about 1 ½ to 2 miles; for the most part the walk will follow a dirt road, but parts of the trail traverse soft sand and the beach. We will go at an easy pace so little legs can keep up. Dress for the weather to maximize comfort and minimize misery! Water is always good to have along, and if it is sunny you may want sunscreen and/or sunglasses.

Pre-registration suggested.
