Field Fun Friday

 

 

Boutin lab members, Sean Konkolics and Mike Peers, lead Edmonton families for a wildlife snow-tracking workshop hosted by Nature Alberta’s: Nature Kids program. The group spent a few hours in Strathcona Science Park looking at different wildlife tracks including coyote, fox, red squirrel, and snowshoe hare. Even though it was a chilly -16C, this was a great opportunity for kids from the city to learn about animal tracks, while getting outside in the winter! 

Mike shows the families a spot where a coyote killed a snowshoe hare.The City of Edmonton in the distance.
