Tracks and Trees


Date & Time: 
Feb 18 2017 - 9:00am - 12:30pm

Join Lynn Levine for a workshop sponsored by the Dummerston Conservation Commission on Saturday, February 18th (Sunday February 19, if Saturday driving conditions are not safe) from 9:00AM-12:30 PM in the woods of the Nature Conservancy on Black Mountain, a unique geological treasure, located in Dummerston, VT.

Participants will learn to think like the animals they are tracking and connect with the forested landscape which includes Red Cedar Relics. Also, Lynn will give tips on identifying trees in the winter. Participants should dress for the outdoors and bring snowshoes. Lynn has extra snow shoes so just let us know. Inside, Lynn will share her collection of scat and fur. Please bring a bagged lunch.

For the last 38 years, Lynn Levine has been an environmental educator, tracker and a consulting forester. She has taken thousands of people into the forest. All workshop participants will be provided with their own copy of Lynn's book, Mammal Tracks and Scat: Life-Size Pocket Guide. Cost of the workshop is $20, of which $5 will be donated to the Dummerston Conservation Commission.

Pre-registration with payment is required by February 12. This workshop is limited to
15 participants.

To register, please call Lynn at (802) 254-4717 or email forester.lynn@gmail.com.

Lynn’s tracking workshop was wonderful. She gives you so much more than just learning how to identify animal tracks. Lynn is a font of knowledge.
#2
Seeking tracks is one thing; what I liked is your explanations of what we are looking at, what we are looking for, what the tracks reveal.
