TRACKS for Their Stocking

Christmas is right around the corner, and if you are like many Americans, you still have to make a few purchases to fill stockings and place gifts under the tree. The average American is going to spend over $1,000 dollars on holiday gifts this year. Here at MUCC, we have a much more cost-effective method on a great gift for the child or grandchildren in your life.

A subscription to TRACKS Magazine!

TRACKS Magazine is a publication supported and written by the Michigan United Conservation Clubs. This magazine focuses on the wildlife and natural resources of the great State of Michigan.

MUCC publishes TRACKS Magazine for eight months during the year. Excluding the months of June, July, August, and September.  The target audience for TRACKS is upper elementary school students (3rd-5th grade).  The information in TRACKS is consistent with the classroom science standards for the state of Michigan. TRACKS highlights a different Michigan animal each month and is loaded with information about habitats, ecology, ecosystems and conservation.  Aside from all of this great information about animals, there is also a poster of the animal for each month included.

To top it off each magazine also has an activity and quiz that your children can do to learn more about the environment around them. Personally, my favorite part of TRACKS is each issue has a few animal jokes that I enjoy telling and making my friends laugh.

With a subscription rate of over 13,000 readers, many classrooms throughout Michigan and the Great Lakes region use TRACKS Magazine. However, you can also subscribe to tracks as a family/individual for the price of $10 per year.

Animals we have already covered this year include the American woodcock, the Eastern American toad, and December’s animal is the yellow perch.

To subscribe please call 1-800-777-6720 and we will get you signed up today so your kids can start receiving the next great issue!

    Hi Shaun! My name is Ellen Hoyer. I’m a science elementary teacher at Munger in Mexicantown area in Southwest Detroit. I believe we’ve exchanged email messages before. You have also been providing a wonderful educational magazine for my science students for several years now, sponsored by Metrowest Steelheaders because of our program “Salmon in the Classroom”. My students continue to enjoy the featured stories, especially the silly jokes on the back pages!
    Question for you: do you ever feature a small story on an extraordinary science student???? I’d love to share an amazing story with you about one of my 3rd graders that happened last week. Feel free to call me at 734-634-0078 or email me at This story is worth hearing!
