Join us on Saturday, December 30, 10:00 AM for a two-mile round-trip will take us along field edges and into the woods. We may see wintering birds flying over the fields or grazing deer. We’ll experience both expansive views of open sky and the intimacy of dense forest. The terrain is flat but sometimes uneven. An additional half-mile on the Foresman’s Loop is an option.

How to do it: Signatures in the Snow

What do mice, rabbits, deer and birds have in common? They are all active in winter. As they go about eating, drinking, looking for shelter, and avoiding predators, the signs they leave behind tell a story. On Saturday, December 30, 2:00 PM after an indoor presentation on tracking, we will go out to decipher the clues that give us a glimpse of where animals have been and what they have been doing.

This calendar provides a listing of all DEC-sponsored events that are open to the public. You can click on any event in the calendar to view additional details about the event. Note that the events at environmental education centers will only display in the region in which they are located, even though they serve residents from adjacent areas.
