Spend some time exploring Myles Standish State Forest to find signs of the animals that live here. If there’s snow on the ground, we’ll be sure to see some tracks. But if there’s no snow, there’s still a good chance that we can find some animal tracks, signs, and scat — also known as poop!

This is a family-friendly outdoor program. Dress in warm layers and boots. Don’t forget hats and mittens, too. No dogs, please. Meet in front of the Interpretive Center next to the forest headquarters. This program is free and open to the public; no parking fee. Rain, snow, or icy trails may cancel.

Cost: Free
