Nature Connection Challenge - Day 55
It can be so much fun to look for evidence of wildlife in your yard or woods, and you often don’t need to look very hard or go very far. Tracks, scats or droppings, a pile of seed hulls or pine cone pieces or other food remnants are all clear indicators that an animal has been in that area. Muddy areas and snow can make it easier to find tracks, and you may even be able to follow the animal’s path for some distance. Keep in mind that it’s important to be respectful and give wild animals space. If you find what might be an animal’s home (such as a hole in the ground or in the base of a tree), be sure to observe from a safe distance.
