Learn how to track winter animals at free adult education program

Join us for our monthly Sunset Series program from 7 p.m.-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, February 8, at the Foothills Learning Center for a discussion of how to investigate the scenes and signatures of animals in the snow.

This free drop-in program is open to adults. No pre-registration is required.

In winter tracking, the stories are etched by wild beings, the parchment is frozen water and the pages are both fleeting and unending. Learn this new form of “literacy” from a tracking expert who will teach you how to “read” the snow and gather a treasury of information about the furry, feathered and fascinating lives of the characters in winter’s story.

The Jim Hall Foothills Learning Center is operated by Boise Parks and Recreation. To get there, take 8th Street to Hulls Gulch Reserve in North Boise. Watch for signs 1/3 mile past the end of the pavement.
