Winter Tracking Workshop, February 20, 2016
February 20, 2016
Free & Open to All
with naturalist Charley Eiseman
Join naturalist Charley Eiseman for an animal tracking excursion in at the Franklin Land Trust’s recently acquired Crowningshield Conservation Area
in Heath. We will go beyond simply identifying tracks to discussing how the animals are moving and how they are interacting with vegetation, their
environment, and each other. Some of the animals seen on this property include moose, black bear, porcupine, fisher, coyote, mink, and ruffed grouse.
Because Charley is the lead author of the award-winning field guide, Tracks & Sign of Insects and Other Invertebrates, we will likely
examine evidence of some of these tiny, underappreciated creatures. Charley has been teaching winter tracking courses for over a decade with his
coauthor, Noah Charney. For the rest of the year, he conducts plant, wildlife, and natural community surveys for land trusts and other organizations.
This free event has been made possible by the Heath and Hawley/Charlemont Local Cultural Councils and is open to the public.
