Steep Rock Association in Washington will hold a family outing on the preserve to explore paw prints Feb. 9 from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

Participants will hunt for prints, identify who made them and learn how to read stories in the snow and mud.

The hike will be a mile and a quarter on and off established trails and will explore the assemblage of meadow, forest and water that makes the preserve valued by wildlife and humans alike.

Participants should meet at the preserve’s main parking lot at 2 Tunnel Road.

The program may be postponed due to a lack of snow cover. If so, date and time updates will be posted on SRA’s Facebook page.
