Kingston Field Naturalists Teens Learn About Mammals at Elbow Lake

A special overnight visit to ELEEC introduced a group of KFN Teens to the large diversity of mammals that can be found at Elbow Lake. While Eastern Chipmunk, Beaver, White-tailed Deer and Eastern Cottontail are frequently seen on the property, other mammals are most often heard (Eastern Coyote) or detected through scat (Black Bear, Deer Mouse), feeding evidence (Muskrat, Porcupine) or tracks (Fisher). Some mammals, such as shrews and voles, are secretive and require greater effort to be discovered. Read the Teens’ field trip report on page 116 of the KFN journal The Blue Bill (December 2013, Volume 60, No. 4). More information on the Kingston Youth Naturalists, which includes Junior and Teen groups.
