Who’s Out There? Winter Wildlife Tracking

February 24 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

animal track in snow

Our region is full of wildlife, yet most of the time it’s difficult to see where the animals are or what they’re doing. This usually changes in the winter when evidence of animals that hop, stalk, or waddle becomes easier to see and interpret in the snow. Even without much snow, wildlife often leave signs of their presence. Over the years of looking for wildlife in winter around the Valley, we’ve seen signs of bear, beaver, coyote, deer, fisher, fox, otter, porcupine, rabbit and more.

Join us on Saturday, February 24, 9:00 – 11:00 am for an outing of winter wildlife tracking at Mineral Hills in Northampton with expert naturalist John Body. With his entertaining and accessible teaching style, John will show you how to identify the tracks of a variety of animals based on their size, shape, and traveling mode, and learn how they interact with the winter world in the Valley. This is always an enjoyable program for all ages, and you never know what you’ll discover about our wild neighbors!

Registration is required with sliding-scale donation.
