Print out the Animal Homes Hike sheets.

We offer two print-outs for this hike:


Keep track of which animals homes you find.

For smaller children, they can check them off on the print-out. If you bring crayons, they could color them in. For older children, they could draw the animal home that they find, or take a photo of it with a camera.


Look at the handiwork of wildlife.

Some animal homes take hours of work. If you find a bird's nest for example, look at all the tiny bits they put together to make it. Do you recognize anything that is man-made?


Keep your Animal Homes print-outs with you when you travel.

For example, you might not have a wetland close to home. But wetlands are rich with diverse animal homes. So consider bringing your animal homes print-outs the next time you can visit one.
