Winter’s hidden inhabitants

Antler rubs are evidence of the presence of white-tailed deer. Bucks rub their antlers on saplings to dislodge the “velvet” covering that is shed in fall, and also to scent trees as territorial markers.

At first glance, the winter landscape can appear to be devoid of life. But for the observant person, nothing is farther from the truth. All around us are clues to the existence of animals, and the stripped-down landscapes of winter provide opportunities to learn more about the activities of wildlife in the Upper Delaware region.

One local opportunity to gain glimpses into those lives is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 12 noon on January 19 at the Pocono Environmental Education Center in Dingmans Ferry, PA. Visit www.peec.org/programs/events/icalrepeat.detail/2014/01/19/281/-/animal-t... for more information on their upcoming Animal Tracking program.
