Pomfret - posted Feb, 21 2014
POMFRET- The Connecticut State Museum of Natural History, part of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at UConn, will hold a wildlife tracking activity on Saturday, March 8, 10 a.m. to noon. Paula Coughlin, Citizen Science Coordinator at the Connecticut Audubon Society Center at Pomfret and Program Staff with UConn’s Kids Are Scientists & Engineers Too, will lead the program. Many wild animals are active throughout winter. When the ground is soft or covered in snow, it’s not uncommon to find the tracks of various animals that have been out and about. Join naturalist and science educator, Paula Coughlin, to search for tracks and signs of winter animals and learn some basic tracking skills. Dress for the weather, including appropriate footwear for moderate hiking in the snow or mud. The program fee is $15, $10 for Museum members. Advance registration is required. This program is for adults and children ages 5 and above. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
