What you'll do

Winter is a perfect time of year for observing animal tracks and animals!

Class will consist of a snowy forest excursion while learning animal track, gait, sign and scat identification in the field, learning stalk walking and awareness techniques, analyzing ecological relationships, all while possibly snowshoeing (depending on weather and ground cover) to cover more ground.

Guests will have the opportunity to explore and learn on 45 privately-owned acres of secluded land in the heart of Evan's Notch in the White Mountains completely surrounded by National Forest land with a highly trained ecologist and natural interpreter.

This class is accessible to all ages!
Other things to note
We will be walking up a hill on snowy ground. Make sure you dress appropriately and are prepared to stay warm for two hours.
