Summer Nature Science Pop Up: Explore Mammal Tracks and Scat

August 14 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Gingko Lawn

Stop by for an interactive, nature science-based lesson and craft, featuring special guest Haley from the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

Learn about the footprints and droppings of various mammals found throughout Pennsylvania. Knowing animal signs is a great naturalist skill. It can help you understand which wildlife lives in an area, what type of food an animal consumes, and more. We will be making tracks in sand and creating scat out of clay.

While supplies last. All ages are welcome, no registration is required. Pop-Ups are outdoors and may be canceled in the case of inclement weather.
