On the Trail of Predator and Prey in Northfield, February 3

Date: February 03, 2018

Time: 1:30 pm

Learn how to identify the tracks left behind by local wildlife. The stories they leave in the snow can offer fascinating glimpses into their mysterious lives. Perhaps we’ll find signs of fox and porcupine, or the elusive and secretive fisher? This outdoor program will include an introduction to common track patterns and helpful tips for observing prints as well as the opportunity to follow tracks and sign to learn more about an animal’s behavior. We’ll explore the trails, field edges and forests as we search for clues and discover which animals are active in winter. Participants should be in moderate shape and the program will include some off-trail tracking. If we are open for skiing, snowshoes are required.

Pre-registration is required by calling 800-859-2960.

For ages 16 and older. Free event with own snowshoes, $16 with snowshoe rental.
