Westwood Hills Nature Center

We visited the Nature Center to look for signs of animals in winter.  Given the temperate weather, we were able to find lots of tracks in the mud, not snow!

We saw turkey tracks (male and female), red squirrel tracks, deer tracks and lots of scat!

A favorite part of the trip is always the puppet show.  The children learn from the animal puppets themselves about hibernation, activity and migration in winter.

Some animals that are not part of our Minnesota habitat still make for fun viewing too!

Cool snake!

Thank you to all our parent helpers!  We will be back to the nature center in the spring to see what else turns up!
