Saturday, March 10, 10 a.m.—SHREWSBURY—Join the Shrewsbury Conservation Commission and the Vermont Woodlands Association for a three-hour wildlife tracking workshop, Saturday, March 10, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Shrewsbury Meeting House. Learn the tracks and signs of many common Vermont mammals that may be found in the Shrewsbury area, with Ed Sharron, a National Park Service science communication specialist based in Woodstock. Participants may spot tracks of fisher, red fox, bobcat, and more possible surprise guests upon the trek across old wood roads up to the Pinnacle.

Begin the workshop with an indoor discussion, and then head outdoors to put those new skills to the test. All ages are welcome. Dress appropriately for the weather, and bring water, snacks, and snowshoes/footwear traction, or trekking poles. Those that do not have snowshoes can receive help sourcing some.

Registration is required as space is limited. The fee is a $10 suggested donation.
