Saturday, October 15, 2016 “How-To” Identify Animal Burrows

Yucca Valley, CA - Have you ever taken a walk and noticed a hole in the ground and wondered what animal made it? Holes abound in the desert as animals seek refuge from climatic extremes and predators, or hunt for food. Candice Weber will shed light on ground holes, elevated holes, divots and mounds in this one-day field class. Participants will learn how to identify holes and what clues can help discern which animals are living in which holes in the classroom session, and then put their knowledge to the test in the field. Curious visitors as well as seasoned naturalists will enjoy peeking into the secret lives of these subterranean dwellers and discover who’s behind all of that digging!
