Event description

Description

Join field naturalist Sophie Mazowita for a full-day immersion in tracking and trailing wildlife in winter. We'll start with an indoor presentation on the basics of track and sign ID, interpreting gaits and behavior, and understanding winter wildlife ecology and habitat. From there we'll head out to explore the forests, brook, and beaver ponds to find out who, why, when, and where wildlife is on the landscape. We will look to get on the trail of a fisher, fox, coyote, or bobcat and become intimately acquainted with its story as we walk in its footsteps.

Sophie is an avid wildlife tracker and coordinator of the Burlington Mammal Tracking Project. She is a program director at Crow's Path Field School in Burlington and was formerly Education Manager at Green Mountain Audubon Center. She's been a student of wildlife tracking for a decade and dedicated much of the last year to honing her practice while getting on the trails of wildlife in New England and Ontario. She has a deep appreciation for tracking as a skill set and framework to foster connection with the land and its wild inhabitants.

Ages: Adults and children 13+
