Tracking Wildlife with Josh Wood at Kinderhook Creek Preserve, East Nassau -- sold out (March 6, 2021 10:00 am - 1:00 pm)


We will focus on learning key characteristics in track identification, and begin to unravel various track patterns and how they correspond to the way the animal was moving, providing us with insight into its behavior and a window into its life. We will also look at other types of animal sign, gaining an increased awareness of the wildlife that surrounds us. Josh Wood is the Program Director of Flying Deer Nature Center in East Chatham. He’s an avid tracker, naturalist and wilderness skills mentor. He leads a monthly tracking club in the East Chatham area.

Dress appropriately for the cold with extra layers that can be taken off or added as needed, keeping in mind there will be periods of inactivity while looking at a track. Depending on snow/ice conditions, snowshoes or microspikes may be needed. Bring water/hot drinks, snacks, and hand/feet warmers.

Due to current public health mandates, registration is limited to 9 people. Masks are required. Do not attend if you are not feeling well.
