Or that an animal’s scat and tracks can tell you more than just what it ate or what direction it was going? Food chains are the balancing act of an ecosystem and can indicate a habitat’s health. Starting in the Eagle Marsh barn (6801 Engle Road, Fort Wayne), we will learn about what it’s like to be a predator or prey, while exploring the different facets of secondary signs they leave behind.
