Do you ever wonder whether the animal tracks you see are coyotes or dogs? Raccoons or house cats? Join the Friends of Mary Cummings Park for a tracking program with Walnut Hill Tracking and Nature Center.

The Walnut Hill folks are experienced trackers and will enlighten visitors about what animals live where in Mary Cummings Park. They get enthusiastic reviews from their participants, and their programs are always popular. This is a great opportunity to learn from them at Mary Cummings Park.

While fresh snow might be the ideal conditions for tracking, tracks and signs can be found in mud and from tree bark, among other ways. On Saturday, Janurary 3rd from 10am to noon, visitors will go ahead with the session in any weather except heavy rain.
