Whether or not you live in the mountains amid the lush scenery and foliage, taking a hike in these areas will yield fascinating discoveries. If you are an avid fan of tracking wild animals in our beautiful North American country, then MyNature Animal Tracks is perfect for you.

Here you will find tabs such as Introduction-Helpful instructions on how to use the guide; Identity Tracks-Diagrams of the prints of the wild animals; View All Species-An impressive assortment of animal descriptions; All Animal Sounds-The actual sounds to listen for while tracking; MyNature Journal-Your own special on-the-go note spot; Field Notes-Excellent tips and ideas on how and where to track; Making Plaster Casts-To immortalize that special print you have found, as well as a Glossary of terms used within the app. It's true, this nature app is a veritable cornucopia of information.
