When you visit natural areas with your students, the experience can be greatly enhanced by knowing how to interpret animal signs. Join us as we learn to read the signs of their presence and activity. We’ll look at tracks, scats, nests, trails and many other evidences of wildlife and their relationship to habitat as we practice our skills both indoors and outdoors. We’ll follow the whole-landscape approach of the great conservationist, Aldo Leopold. Although targeted to teachers of grades prekindergarten through eight, other educators are welcome to register and attend the workshop but may need to adapt the materials as appropriate. Continuing Professional Development Units are available. This workshop is part of the ENTICE (Environment and Nature Training Institute for Conservation Education) program from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
