WILLIAMSTOWN -- Naturalist Dan Yacobellis will lead a wildlife tracking workshop in Hopkins Memorial Forest from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16.
The program will teach the group how to find, identify and interpret the tracks of some of the wild animals active in the Berkshire winter woods, including rabbit, squirrel, fisher, fox, coyote, deer, and more.
The group will follow the tracks of one or two animals in order to gain an intimate glimpse into their habits, preferences and interactions with the land and other animals.
The program will begin at the Rosenburg Center near the entrance to Hopkins Forest on Northwest Hill Road, 2600 acres managed by the Williams College Center for Environmental Studies.
Anyone interested should bring lunch and water and should dress very warmly, as most of the program will take place outdoors.
The program is free, but space is limited.
