Mapping the Forest

Today, I caught a red-backed vole, which was fun. She was feisty and weighed 17 grams. How much is that in ounces?

We also walked a trail in the forest searching for any signs of animal life. We had a GPS with us so we could mark down the latitude and longitude of the big trees in the forest and any big turns in the trail. You'd be surprised how many signs of animal life you miss when you're not looking for them.

Challenge: name three different ways you can tell an animal has been somewhere in the forest without seeing the animal itself.
