“Animals Don’t Cover Their Tracks,” a presentation on identifying wildlife by the tracks they leave behind, will be offered free on Tuesday, Jan. 10, at 7 p.m., at the Healy Senior Center, 456 Briceland Rd., in Redway.

In the presentation, certified tracker Kim Cabrera will discuss the tracks and scat left by wild animals that inhabit the Lost Coast region.  Participants will have the opportunity to use animal footprint molds to make plaster casts.
