Message details:
Animal Tracking is an ancient art that has many current applications. From nature photography to field biology, a solid base in animal tracking can enhance your experiences in the field. We will choose one or two animals to follow and focus on getting an intimate glimpse into its habits, preferences and interactions with the land and other animals. Undoubtedly, we will learn a tremendous amount about the forest and all its inhabitants by following these animals through their daily activities as their very survival depends on their understanding of the environment in which they live. The program, this Saturday, Feb. 16th 9:30 to 3:00, will start at the Rosenburg Center near the entrance to Hopkins Forest. Bring a lunch and water and don't forget to dress very warmly with extra layers, hat, gloves, etc., as tracking can be a slow moving activity. Reservations are required: contact ajones@williams.edu 597-4353.
