Winter is a wonderful time to look for animal signs. If not in the snow, then in wet mud. This nature program, for ages 6-12, takes kids on a short hike to look for tracks, scat and more. Dress for the outdoors.
This free program will be held Feb. 26 at 10 a.m. at the Forest Park Hatchery. Sponsored by the Missouri Department of Conservation. Registration is required.
