Be a better tracker by understanding habitat and behavior.
Sue Morse of Keeping Track – Animal Tracking Group Hike
“The first step in tracking animals is knowing where to look. The second is looking!” Sue Morse leads a moderate 3-hour hike (or snowshoe!) to teach us how to recognize and interpret wildlife signs, paying particular attention to the relationship between the animals and their habitat. With Sue’s expertise, we will explore portions of the Hay Forest and Wildlife Management Area, situated across Route 103A from the Fells Gatehouse. Meets at the Gatehouse Kiosk.
This program can be combined with a presentation on the previous day for a discounted fee for both events. Presentation only: members; $15, nonmembers $20. Hike only: members $25, nonmembers $30. Combined presentation and hike: members $35; nonmembers $45.
