Make A Baited Track Station
See what critters are visiting your yard or nearby natural area!
Here’s a fun follow-up activity that builds upon the Tracking 101 lesson that we posted previously. Be sure to read the Tracking 101 background information, as well as the downloadable PDF resources for that lesson. In the Tracking 101 lesson, one of the activities was to make plaster casts of animal tracks that you find in natural areas. But sometimes the ground is just too hard and there aren’t any good animal tracks in the soil that would yield a decent plaster cast.
