Wildlife Tracking: Find & Follow the Signs

Noble View Naturalist Series 2017

Leader: Jim Pelletier, Berkshire Wildlife Tracker & Appalachian Trail Committee Chair

Come learn about tracks, their patterns, and other signs of winter wildlife: how to look and what to look for. We’ll spend a short time inside at the beginning discussing tracking and then hit the trails and fields, looking for tracks and signs and learning to understand the stories they tell. A laminated Animal Tracks ID card that trackers use in the field will be included. Donation $5.00.
