Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will offer a free hands-on program to teach children how to recognize an animal by its tracks. The one-hour Wild Thursday program is set for 7 p.m., July 26, at the group shelter at Spring Meadow Lake State Park, west of Helena.
Participants will learn to identify some common wildlife tracks they may encounter while exploring western Montana. They’ll also cast their own animal tracks using plaster of Paris and take home the mold as a souvenir. The program is open to children between the ages of 8-12 years old. For information, and to reserve a spot in the class, call FWP’s Montana Wild at 406-444-9944.
