Fun Discovery

You might encounter a squirrel or some deer, or at least you'll see an assortment of animal tracks on the snow-covered forest floor. This is a great way to introduce the kids to exploration and identifying different animal tracks. The Big Bear Discovery Center sells books on animal tracks and offers programs on weekends to teach youngsters how to recognize and decipher the variety of wildlife prints in the snow.
