Learn about tracking wildlife on March 3

ADDISON — Vermonters of all ages are invited to learn about winter wildlife tracking on Sunday, March 3, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Dead Creek Visitor Center in Addison, Vermont. This guided walk is free and open to the public, and registration is required.
Ali Thomas, education manager for the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department, will be leading the walk. An experienced naturalist and tracker who has worked on conservation education projects throughout the country, Thomas studied under renowned wildlife tracker James Halfpenny. She currently manages the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department’s popular summer youth conservation camp program, and trains teachers and other educators how to engage students with the natural world.
According to Thomas, tracking wildlife is a great way to connect with nature and the outdoors and getting started requires no experience or equipment.
“No special skills are necessary for participants,” said Thomas. “You need only the curiosity to witness stories wildlife leave behind in the snow. From the tracks of a fox catching a ruffed grouse in the snow to a mouse scurrying along whipping its tail behind, winter in Vermont is a great time to discover signs of wildlife.”
Participants are asked to wear appropriate clothing and footwear for walking in the snowy woods. To register for this wildlife walk go to vtfishandwildlife.com.
