Winter Wildlife Tracking Seminar
Join a NH Forest Society naturalist for a guided snowshoe tour along the lower slopes of Sunset Hill at the Hay Estate in Newbury to identify tracks and signs of winter wildlife. February should feature reliably deep snow cover for tracking at the outset of the breeding season for many active-in-winter mammal species including furbearers: weasels, fisher, coyote, fox, bobcat. Learn basic tracking patterns and the natural history for common local wild mammals.
This relatively easy two-mile hike can be challenging on snowshoes in deep snow. Be prepared for wind and cold weather conditions; wear winter boots and outer layers, bring snowshoes, lunch and water.
