Become an animal super-sleuth by searching for and understanding tracks in the snow. When it snows it is easier to see the tracks that animals leave on the ground. What animals have ventured out in the snow? Can you work out what they are just from looking at their footprints? Where were they going and what were they doing?! We walk around the grounds to find out.
