Susan Morse Present Wildlife Tracking Workshop

Learn from the expert in a small group setting

Presented by: Moose Mountains Regional Greenways

Wildlife lovers will have a unique opportunity to learn from expert naturalist and wildlife biologist Susan Morse in a field tracking workshop offered by Moose Mountains Regional Greenways (MMRG) on Saturday, February 22. Morse, founder of the award-winning ‘Keeping Track’ program, will lead small groups on an exploration of our local forests. Participants will gain a more intimate knowledge of our native species while asking questions and learning from Morse’s lifetime of experience.

Morse’s ‘Keeping Track’ program, based in Richmond, Vermont, teaches concerned adults and children to observe, interpret, and record evidence of wildlife in their region. Keeping Track science-based workshops support local conservation projects; wildlife monitoring programs help build community; and educational opportunities inspire and motivate participants to conserve wildlife habitat.

Forester Wendy Scribner is excited about the tracking workshop and has already signed up. She elaborates: “It will be great to get out in the woods with someone so confident at explaining the tracks we see and who can also teach us about animal behavior and habitat. There’s always more to learn!”

The Keeping Track workshop will be offered twice:  9 am – 12 pm and 1 – 4 pm. The cost for either workshop is $35 and advance registration is required by 5 pm on Wednesday, February 18. Online signup is available at www.mmrg.info. Participation is limited to 20 people in each workshop so early registration is encouraged. Workshops will require moderate hiking and other outdoor physical activity in potentially inclement weather. The location within MMRG’s seven town service area will be chosen based on conditions just prior to the event. For more info, call MMRG Education Coordinator Kari Lygren at 603-978-7125.

MMRG, a non-profit land trust, works to conserve and connect important water resources, farm and forest lands, wildlife habitats, and recreational land and offers regular educational opportunities to inform all ages about the benefits of our region’s natural resources. MMRG would like to thank Meredith Village Savings Bank and Eastern Propane for sponsoring this Sue Morse program of events.
