Whitetail deer tracks on Academy Pond in Baker Park Reserve Near-Wilderness Settlement are clear evidence that Winter wildlife survive and thrive under, and on the ice for several months each year. The Three Rivers Park District hosted a Webelos Naturalist Badge program Sunday, Feb. 5, in Maple Plain. About 40 Webelos split into two groups for the two-hour event, locating and classifying animal tracks and other signs of life before heading into the lodge for other lessons and information needed to earn a Naturalist Badge.
