Identifying and interpreting wildlife tracks can greatly expand your understanding of what species are using your land, and how wildlife respond to your habitat management activities. Join wildlife biologists Haley Andreozzi and Emma Tutein from UNH Cooperative Extension as they guide you through fields, forests, and wetlands in search of winter wildlife tracks and signs. You’ll also learn how to use wildlife sign to interpret wildlife behavior and habitat use. This workshop will take place entirely outdoors at the Birch Ridge Community Forest in New Durham, NH, so come prepared and dress for winter weather. Detailed location and parking information will be provided to registered participants.
