Workshop gives insight about who’s been in the backyard

Saturday, Feb. 25, 9 a.m.—WOODSTOCK—Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park is hosting a Working Woodlands Workshop on animal tracking Saturday, Feb. 25, 9 a.m.-12 p.m.
Who’s walking through the backyard? Come and learn the tracks and signs of many common Vermont mammals. Along with identifying the tracks, learn how fast the animal was moving, its mood, most recent meals and so much more.
National Park Service Science Communication Specialist Ed Sharron will begin with an indoor discussion. Participants then head outside for a guided snowshoeing experience, tracking animals through the park trails and woods.
All ages are welcome. Please dress appropriately for outside, as the workshop will happen snow or shine. Bring a bagged lunch, water and snowshoes. Adult and child snowshoes are available if needed.
The free event will be held at the Forest Center, Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park, Woodstock. Parking is available in the Billings Farm & Museum overflow lot, located on Old River Road.
