Winter Trek for Tracks

  • Willard Pond Sanctuary 178 Willard Pond Rd. Hancock, NH 03449 (map)

Get out your Sherlock Holmes detective hat: it's time to look for clues. The winter woods are perfect terrain for following the comings and goings of many species of mammals, and those of some birds as well. As long as the snow's not too deep, we'll climb Goodhue Hill, part of New Hampshire Audubon's Willard Pond Sanctuary in Hancock, NH. Bobcat, deer, moose, otters, squirrels, and porcupines are only a few of the tracks we may follow. As for birds, Ruffed Grouse, woodpeckers, maybe a hawk or two, and multiple species of finch could well show themselves on this midwinter trip. Dress warmly! We'll return to the Audubon cabin just after noon for some lunch and hot cocoa. Meet at the Willard Pond parking lot at the end of Willard Pond Rd. at 9:00 a.m.
