Program Overview

When it comes to wildlife tracking in New England, your mind might jump to cold winter temperatures and deep snows. While southern Vermont is a great place for snow tracking, the numerous river banks, muddy areas, and sandy locations make for exceptional warm weather tracking as well! In this beginner-friendly experiential workshop, we will learn about summer season track and sign, make friends with fellow trackers, and have fun!
