[ARCHIVED] Tracking Animals in Winter at Thorn Creek Nature Center, Feb. 7

“Tracking Animals in Winter” at Thorn Creek Nature Center on Sunday, Feb. 7, from 1-3 p.m., will explore how animals survive winter’s chills and discover adaptations they have developed to keep warm and find food.

Put yourself in the paws of active woodland creatures and follow the trails in search of tracks and other spoor. You'll also create plaster replicas of tracks to take home.

Participants should be prepared for the cold weather and be able to walk a mile outdoors on natural surface trails across uneven and possibly snow-covered ground. The “Tracking Animals in Winter” program is free and open to all ages, but registration is required by Feb. 5. If weather is inclement this program will still take place inside the Nature Center.

For more information or to register, please call Thorn Creek Nature Center, 247 Monee Road, Park Forest at 708-747-6320, email, or visit
