Winter Tracking Workshop, 2/21/15

February 21, 2015
Free & Open to All
with naturalist Charley Eiseman

Join naturalist Charley Eiseman for an animal tracking excursion in Hawley. 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 cats, coyote, and red fox. As well as red shouldered and broad winged hawks, barred owls and great horned owls.

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 animals in addition to the more conspicuous signs of mammals and birds. 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. 

Limited spots available. Please RSVP to Linda by February 17, (413) 625-9151 or lalvord(at)verizon.net
