Cottonwood Forest Creatures: Ever want to become an animal? Now is your chance! During this program students and their adults will investigate tracks, scat, skulls, pelts, and other biofacts of several cottonwood forest creatures. After their investigations families will get the chance to become that animal in several interactive activities. Once ready to transform back, families will enjoy an art and literacy activity that relates to one of our favorite cottonwood forest creatures: the porcupine. 

Program is $5 per family, registration is required at play.cabq.gov (Open Space → Public Programs → Family Programs → Discovery Days)
