FAIRBANKS - Ever wonder about the animals that winter in the Fairbanks area, how to spot them or recognize their presence?

The Winter Nature Walk/Tracking Program at Creamer’s Field Saturday can help answer some of those questions. Join Friends of Creamer’s Field and wildlife educators for a walk around the refuge and learn about the local wildlife.

“We will hopefully see some chickadee, squirrel, vole, hare, fox and moose tracks. We could also possibly see some owl or raven wing imprints or even some ptarmigan if they have chosen to return to the refuge,” explained Melissa Sikes, director of programs for Friends of Creamer’s Field.

(“But) tracking is more than just footprints, it’s signs too like scat, scratches on trees, new nest building, hairs left on twigs, bitten branches, etc. We’ll be covering how to look for more details to the story animals leave behind.”

Participants will also make plaster casts of animal tracks. Meet at the Farmhouse Visitor Center at 1 p.m. Walk begins at 1:30 p.m.

Call 452-5162 or visit for more information.
