Wild Winter Eyes: A Guided Wildlife Tracking Exploration

January 25, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

$20
Learn to track animals in a winter wood.

Enjoy Wild Winter Eyes, a three-hour nature immersion, with The Nature Museum (TNM) and Vermont Land Trust!

Wildlife biologist Chris Bernier will lead a small group of participants through a unique outdoor exploration on VLT-conserved land in Andover. Accompanying will be Jay DeGregorio, senior environmental educator at TNM, and VLT staff. 

This trek will lead participants through a snowy landscape where we will discuss habitat types, animal tracking/camera trapping tips and tricks, forest management, and land conservation.

The group will pass through terrain that is intimately familiar to Bernier while discovering this winter world. Participants should expect an overall moderate hike with some uphill sections that will be more strenuous. Snowshoes and winter gear are required. If you would like to borrow a pair of snowshoes, please indicate the number of snowshoes and sizes on your registration form.

Pre-registration is required and the meeting spot, which is on private land in Andover, will be sent to all registrants. The cost is $20.

To register, please visit nature-musuem.org.

 

The Vermont Land Trust welcomes and affirms all people regardless of their age, culture, abilities, ethnic origin, gender, gender identity, marital status, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.

To request reasonable accommodations, please email Jay at jay@nature-museum.org.
