Onsite Programs: Pre-School
National Museum of Wildlife Art (Approximately 45 minutes)
Children follow a trail of animal tracks through the Museum learning about animals and art as they go. Select either the general animal tracking tour to learn about four different animals or the specific animal tour to focus on one animal (bear, wolf, bison, or mountain lion). The activity ends with time in the Children’s Gallery and the creation of a track rubbing.
