At first glance, the winter landscape looks barren and silent. But, if you know where to look and what to look for, the well trained eye can see signs of animal life and activity all around us.

Join the Tahoe Institute of Natural Science and the Tahoe Rim Trail for February 23rd, 10am-1pm  for the Snow Detectives family snowshoe trek at Tahoe Meadows.

Families will become “Snow Detectives” and learn the secret skills of the animal tracker. We will discover the diversity of animal tracks, discuss winter habitats and learn about the ways that animals survive the cold winter months in the Tahoe Basin.

All participants are expected to provide their own snowshoes, dress appropriately and bring plenty of water and food to last through the hike. Further information and hike details will be emailed to participants before the start of the program.

Distance: 2 miles

Difficulty: Easy

Duration: 3 hours

Locations: Tahoe Meadows

Reservations are required by calling the TRTA office at (775) 298-0012 or email
