Stories in the Snow: NRWA Afterschool Tracking Program for Children
Wednesdays, January 7, 14, 21, and 28, 2015, from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m.
NRWA River Resource Center, 592 Main Street in Groton, MA
Winter animals tell their tales of adventure and survival through the signs they leave behind: footprints, chew marks, food middens, and even scat! During the month of January, NRWA's Eco-Adventure Afterschool Series led by River Classroom Director Stacey Chilcoat explores the exciting world of animal tracking. Children ages 9 to 12 will learn how to identify some of our most common animal neighbors by their footprints, hike the local trails looking for signs of activity, make plaster castings of animal footprints, play animal games and create their own personal pocket tracking guide to take home. After a cold adventurous outdoor activity, we will come inside to share Native American stories while sipping on a warm cup of cocoa. Don't miss out on this exciting series!
