Add this event to my calendar 02/23/2019 10:00 AM 02/23/2019 12:00 PM America/New_York Wintertime Animal Tracking Walk

On Saturday, February 23, Bremen Library and Maine Coast Heritage Trust invite all ages to join MCHT steward and naturalist Kirk Gentalen for a lively morning of exploration and animal tracking lessons from 10 AM to noon.  

Fresh snow captures animal tracks, trails, and tunnels providing lessons that are untaught in any other season. Maine forests, fields, and frozen wetlands offer hundreds of clues for the intrepid outdoorsman who knows what to look for in each snowfall.

Deer, coyote, fox, bobcat, raccoon, and fisher tracks are all possibilities when Bremen is under a blanket of snow. Kirk will also show us how to look for clues to the presence of owls. In Kirk’s words, “With each winter storm there’s so much potential for exploration - it’s literally insane!”

The group will meet at 10 AM in at the Bremen Library, 204 Waldoboro Road in Bremen, ME. 

After a quick slide show to familiarize the group with tracks and trails, we’ll head out into the woods around the library to see what we can find.

Participants should dress in warm layers and wear appropriate boots for walking off the trail in deep snow.

Binoculars and cameras are encouraged.
