Lions and tigers and bears, oh my... Foxes and otters and hares, oh my... Bobcats and weasels and moose and who knows what prints the snow is holding for us, just waiting to be discovered. Come learn how to tell a fox's track from a golden retriever's, a porcupine's from a possum's, a mink's from a mongoose's. Phil Brown will lead us on a mile-long hike in New Hampshire Audubon's Willard Pond Wildlife Sanctuary north of Hancock, looking for signs of wildlife and listening for birds along the way. Meet at the parking lot at the end of Willard Pond Road at 9:00. Bring some water, a little snack, and your sharpest eyes! (Depending on snow cover, snowshoes or microspikes may be helpful if you have them.) All are welcome!
