SWR teaches about tracks and scat

What is that animal you have coming into your back yard at night, leaving its tracks in your flower bed? Who has meandered down the hill in the snow? What is that strange noise you keep hearing? 

You see their tracks, hear their calls and find funny little dollops of scat, but do you really know who your wild neighbors are? 

Sierra Wildlife Rescue will hold its class on “Tracks and Scat” on Thursday, Oct. 13, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. to help you learn to identify and understand the numerous species of wildlife that may live on your property (or are just passing through). Join us to answer all your questions about the animals with which you share the beauty of the foothills.

All classes are held at the SWR Wildlife Center, 3030 Newtown Road, Placerville. Parking is limited, so make reservations by contacting Barbara Barker at 530-621-2650, or at [email protected] If you sign up and are unable to attend a class, notify Barker so those on the waiting list can be notified. All classes are free to SWR members; a $5 donation is requested from the general public.
