Timberwolf Trail - Trail Camera Captures- October 2016-17 Edition

The Timberwolf Trail is proud to sponsor a trail camera for Wisconsin's Department of Natural resources Snapshot Wisconsin initiative. In a nutshell, this program provides trail camera equipment and training for sites willing to check and upload photos from a natural Wisconsin site. The information gathered will help with a variety of topics, including animal populations, habitat ranges, and good old fashioned animal identification fun. I love having this opportunity to show the class just how nature is all around us. While many of our pictures featured mice, chipmunks, squirrels and many deer behinds, we were able to capture some more enjoyable pictures of our animal friends. 

The only thing better than seeing the animals on the photos was watching my students and their reactions to the photos.  It makes all the work and planning worthwhile!

Enjoy the October edition!
