Third Saturday Nature Walk at Edgewood Park and Natural Preserve:


Creature Feature: Dusky-Footed Woodrat (Neotoma fuscipes)

What do dusky-footed woodrats look like?  What are their stick houses like inside? How many live in one house? What do they eat?  Who wants to eat them?  How do they protect themselves?  How do they find mates and raise pups?  Why are they also called packrats?


Come ask docent Kathryn Strachota lots of questions to learn about this keystone species.  Curious children especially welcome!  We’ll walk a 2.5 mile loop on the Sylvan, Serpentine, Franciscan, and Baywood Glen Trails at a moderate pace.

Saturday November 21, 2015 at 10 a.m.
