FULL: 2023 Winter Wildlife Tracking Workshop
Friday, February 10, 2023 • 9:30am–12:00pm
Alton, NH 03810
About the Event
Identifying and interpreting wildlife tracks can greatly expand your understanding of what species are using your land, and how wildlife respond to your habitat management activities. Join Extension wildlife biologists Haley Andreozzi and Emma Tutein as they guide you through fields, forests, and wetlands in search of winter wildlife tracks and signs. You’ll also learn how to use wildlife sign to interpret wildlife behavior and habitat use. This workshop will take place entirely outdoors at the Morse Preserve in Alton (owned and managed by The Society for the Protection of NH Forests), so come prepared and dress for winter weather. Detailed location and parking information will be provided to registered participants.
COVID-19 Safety Precautions: The program will be held entirely outdoors, limited to 15 participants, and social-distancing will be encouraged. Participants will be asked to stay home if they have tested positive for COVID-19, are waiting for COVID-19 test results, have COVID-19 symptoms, or have had close contact with a person who has tested positive for or who has symptoms of COVID-19 in advance of a field trip.
What to Bring: Dress for being outdoors in winter conditions. Bring a snack, plenty of water, and your own snowshoes or traction devices.
