About the Event

Our group will spend the afternoon learning from a naturalist of the Weaselhead Preservation Society as we take a fairly slow hike around the land there.  The program will be tailored to the age range of students that sign up.  Possible activities and teaching might include: observing and identifying animal tracks and movement, looking for other animal activity signs, teaching about animal survival skills in winter and migratory patterns, etc.  

Registration Deadline is January 19, 2022
