Wildlife on the Forest Hike

youth identify taxidermy animals on a forest hike

Juniors and Intermediates will take a short hike, and be asked to identify 20 animals from the list.

Participants will be given a list of possible animals (by common name) and will need to match those names to the numbers on prepared specimens.

Juniors and Intermediates should be prepared to visually identify specimens. Intermediates may also be required to identify some animals by sound (birds and amphibians) or tracks (mammals).
