New park director Jason Larson led a group this weekend through Gorman Nature Center to look for animal signs.

"We were hoping it'd be a little colder and there'd be some more snow on the ground," Larson says. "But the snow melted away, so we got to look for some other things."

Larson planned to search for signs in the snow that revealed the animals' activity, such as tracks, imprints from birds' wings after landing, or tunnels and burrows.

"You might not be able to generally see those animals, but you might be able to go out and find signs that they were there, and what particular animal they might be from the nest that was made, or a certain type of track or something." 

Larson also has other things planned, such as "Breakfast with the Birds," an event where participants can come to the park's visitor center to have breakfast and do some bird-watching. For a full calendar of events, please visit http://www.gormannaturecenter.org.
