Tracking Predators on Averill's Island

Sunday, February 9, 2020

12:30 PM to 4:30 PM

Topsfield, MA

What is life like for a predator in winter​ ? In this exploration of remote Averill's Island we will try to find fresh tracks of a predator that we can follow through the winter forest.


We will begin with an indoor presentation and discussion, then head out on the sanctuary for about 3 hours, so be sure to dress warmly.

Snowshoes are not required, but bring them if you have them.
