Wilcox-Warnes Presreve HIKE – Reviewed

January 31, 2011

We had over 30 hikers show up for our Michigan Nature Association hike at their new Nature Preserve, out at the Wilcox-Warnes Nature Sanctuary. It had snowed almost 3 inches the night before, so there was a nice covering of snow everywhere.

Kathrine from the MNA was there in answer questions, along with Martha and other MNA personal. Mike led the way in his snow shoes, to pack down the snow a bit for the rest of us. This worked out well, with the freshly fallen snow.

It was beautiful out in the woods in the fresh snow. We discovered a large area of Turkey tracks. The local clock had already been out that morning foraging around. We stopped by a Great Horned owl’s nest, but no one was home.

After the Hike, a few of us went over to near by Rochester, for the FIRE & ICE Festival. Ice sculptures, Snow shoeing, Food and Fireworks where just some of the activities there. An excellent winter day!



Latest ANIMAL TRACKS ID sheets

January 21, 2011

Just finished the latest version of our Michigan Animal Tracks ID sheets. It is a two page file, that covers most of the upland forest animals and stream side critters as well. These are the most common animal tracks we see, here in Southeastern Michigan.

This two page ID sheets will be given yo all in attendance of our Wilcox-Warned HIKE on 1/29/11. We hope you will find these ID sheets helpful in your winter hiking and exploring. It is great fun for all ages, to examine what kind of wildlife is roaming the areas we Hike in.
