Tcarnes  23 .jpg?ixlib=rails 2.1

Here’s a new Nature Nugget for your Wednesday. Today, join Elizabeth as she walks outside and explores the way that animals leave signs for us to find.

In this video, she and her nephews found deer scat, rabbit fur, coyote scat, rose hips nibbled on by an animal, and even a deer track in the mud.

Look around your area and see if you can find evidence of animals near you. Some helpful tips and tricks for finding animal signs are attached here. Enjoy your Wednesday – we’ll be back tomorrow with some more Nature Nuggets!

She began as a camper, then worked on staff for four summers while affectionately known as “Edna,” taught as an instructor at High Trails Outdoor Education Center, and now works as the Program Specialist for High Trails. Her favorite things about camp include eating liberal quantities of chippy dippy bars, singing a little bit too loudly at Vespers, and watching campers accomplish incredible feats. She recently graduated with a degree in sociology from Colorado College and now lives at camp, counting down the days until summer each year.
