Kids Intrigued by Animal Paw Prints

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The Montana Audubon Conservation Education Center hosted their monthly class that's geared for children and families.

Audubon Center, Naturalist Teacher said, "I do some work in classrooms, and for as much fun as that is for working with kids indoors is taking them outside, and seeing them really get to explore, and even cover topics they learn in the classroom outside as well is just really exciting."

It was even more thrilling for one Billings, second grader.

Second grader, Josh said, "I'm so excited because this is my first time ever, and I get to do a new thing, and I love doing new things."

From mountain lion to grizzly bear imprints, the day was full of adventure and gooey animal plaster molds because every child picked two animal tracks to mix up, and take home.

"You know it's really cool to them or interesting, or maybe if they've never seen the animal before that's usually what intrigues them, or makes them choose the print," said Walton.

Even though Josh's favorite animal is a bald eagle, he decided to mix up prints for a weasel and skunk animal paw mold.

"Because you know I just love different tracks. I was like oooh I've never seen these before," said Josh.

Josh describes himself as an animal lover, and said the mess was well worth it.

"It was easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy," said Josh.

"And they, the molds, they really popping them out at the end, and seeing how it turned out is always a really exciting part at the end of the day," said Walton.

Walton also said the class is every month, and the next one will be on March 16th from 1:30 to 3 PM.
