MyNature Tree App 1.1 Released

I’m finally happy to say that version 1.1 of the MyNature Tree app is ready for sale in the App Store. The MyNature Tree Guide is a identification tool for over 190 trees found across North America. Version 1.1 of our tree app addressed a crashing problem with use on the iPhone 4.  We’ll be running some special free app give aways over the next few days through Twitter and our Natureguides page on Facebook.   Happy Hiking !

Identifying Skunk Tracks

Most people have smelled a skunk,  there’s no mistaking the odor but would you recognize a skunk’s track if you saw one?  Skunks have five toes on both their fore and hind foot  they actually resemble a miniature bear track.  The front track will measure from 1 to just over 1 1/2 inches long and the hind track will be just a bit longer measuring around 1 3/4 to 2 inches long. They have long sharp claws for digging and the claws will almost always register in their tracks. Skunks most often utilize a pacing gait where all four feet will register in the trail they leave.  If you happen to come upon fresh tracks and follow them just remember to keep a safe distance if they lead you to their owner, skunks can spray up to 15 feet  and can spray very accurately up to 10 feet.
