What happened here? Whose footprint is that? Join Center for Wildlife and the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests to answer these questions and more! Following an environmental education program including live animal ambassadors from the Center for Wildlife, we will take a hike and identify the tracks of our local wildlife as well as the evidence of several telltale wildlife encounters!
