On Sunday, February 11, 1:00-3:00 pm, the Musketaquid Arts and Environment Program of the Umbrella Community Arts Center presents a Wild Walk. Join Andrew Joslin on an educational walk in Chamberlin Woods. Learn how to use both sight and sound (and sometimes smell) to interpret animal movements and behavior. In addition to recognizing common tracks, learn to observe wintering bird flock behaviors and study animal signs like burrows, digging, and pecking. Listen for animal sounds and communication — what are they doing or saying? What can wind and weather tell us when we’re in the woods? How does weather impact forest ecosystems and animal — and our own — decision-making in the winter woods? Geared to enthusiasts of all ages.
