Ever wonder what animals do in winter? Who made those tracks in the snow? Join Julianne Taylor at Craig Brook National Fish Hatchery, Sunday, Feb. 18, for Winter Animal Forensics! Learn how to identify animals active during the winter months and the amazing adaptations that help them survive. There will be a scavenger hunt and the chance to make and take home a track casting. There will be two sessions offered, starting at the Hatchery Visitor Center: 10-11:30 am, or 1-2:30 pm. Space is limited, so pre-register at [email protected] or 469-6929.

While you’re there, bring skiis or snowshoes and enjoy some short loop trails around the fish hatchery, or venture out into the Wildlands or onto Alamoosook Lake for a longer jaunt.
