Dirt Time: An Animal Tracking Family Adventure

October 26 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Free

Have you ever wanted to learn how to interpret clues left behind by animals in the forest? This is your chance! Join us on the trails as we learn about animal tracks and scat. All participants will receive a free animal track guide to use during and after the program.

Dress for the weather, bring water, and apply sunscreen and insect repellent. We will be spending part of the program looking at tracks in the mud, so please bring gloves and wear clothes and shoes you don’t mind getting dirty. This program is free for members or with daily admission for non-members.

(Free with Fontenelle Forest membership or with a family pass checked out from your local Omaha Metro library.)

The mission of Fontenelle Forest is to provide a place where people can experience and enjoy the quiet wild of nature. We want to inspire current and future generations to care for the natural world.
