It’s a great time of year to see wildlife tracks in our open spaces. Have you noticed any tracks on the ground in your recent hikes? The winter rains have made the ground soft and it’s now easier for passing critters to leave their mark on the trail.

Tracks are like clues to a great puzzle. They teach us who’s around and give insights into how animals move across the land. Even the shyest of animals can leave tracks, giving us a hint into which creatures live on our open spaces even though we may not see them.

If you’re excited about wildlife and learning how to track them, this digital book is just for you. It illustrates seven common tracks in our open spaces. Take a flip through the book and brush up on your tracking knowledge before your next hike.

    Thanks for the tips!

    Editing note: “retractable”, right? (unless it’s a track pun!)
