A shorter version of this presentation is available as a class,
OH DEER! Play predator and prey games and explore the White-Tailed Deer through inquiry and exploration! Examine the anatomical structure of a deer as we piece together a skeleton, learn how to age a deer by looking at its teeth and examine deer sign along the trail as we search for rubs, scrapes, scat, tracks, bedding area and browse.
