Track Wildlife with the Forest Society in the Bound Tree Forest in Warner
Join the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests and the Warner Conservation Commission on Saturday, February 13 (snow date Sunday, February 14) on a winter wildlife tracking hike. Valentine's Day is reliable for deep snow, and love is in the air as foxes, coyotes, bobcats, fishers, weasels, mink, otter, squirrels, and skunks begin breeding as the days grow longer. From 10 am to 2 pm, Forest Society naturalists will lead the snowshoe trek through the Bound Tree Forest, located in Warner along the Henniker/Hopkinton town lines. This 374-acre property in the Mink Hills was recently conserved.
This moderate excursion will follow snowmobile trails and skid roads and includes off-trail exploration to provide a midwinter snowshoe adventure. Along the way, we'll discuss winter wildlife ecology. BYO lunch, cocoa, and snowshoes.
Pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, call 603-224-9945 or visit http://www.forestsociety.org/thingstodo.
