Who goes there? Learn to recognize animal footprints and other signs of their passage through the woods during the two Animal Tracking classes sponsored by the Branford Land Trust’s Nature Explorer Program from 9:30 to 11am on Saturday, January 28 and Saturday, February 25. These fun and interesting classes will be led by naturalists Tom Cleveland and Chris Woerner at the Lake Saltonstall Preserve. We’ll hope for snow, but it will be fun even without it!
Meet at the Regional Water Authority parking lot on the north side of Hosely Avenue, down Hosely Avenue 0.3 miles from Brushy Plain Road. Expect moderate terrain, some sloping trails and inclines, rocky underfooting. Parents should be prepared to carry younger children if they get tired. Please wear appropriate dress and comfortable, supportive walking shoes. Bring water. Walking sticks welcome.
