Who was out walking in the woods last night? Was it a hopper? A perfect stepper? Or a bounder? Join a VIC Naturalist and come explore the VIC woodlands. We'll be looking for animal tracks of those species that call the Adirondacks home for the winter. Tracks commonly found in this wetland and mixed forest ecosystem include: mole, vole, hare, grouse, deer, bobcat, and American martin.
