On this winter ramble we'll explore animal tracks, porcupine signs and search for signs of fisher. This 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. Snowshoeing is fabulous exercise, incredibly easy to learn and no prior experience is necessary. A cup of hot cocoa by a fire will round out the afternoon. Participants should be in moderate shape and the program will include some off-trail tracking. If we are open for skiing, snowshoes are required. Bring water and snacks, wear wind pants or gaiters and dress in warm layers that can be shed as we get moving. Warm footwear is essential. All levels of experience are welcome.
