Woodland workshop to cover tracks & trees


DUMMERSTON — The Vermont Woodland Association will present a Walk in the Woods: Tracks & Trees workshop from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 12 (bad weather day is Sunday, Jan. 13).

Join Lynn Levine in the woods of the Nature Conservancy on Black Mountain. Participants will learn to think like the animals they are tracking and connect with the forested landscape which includes Red Cedar Relics. Also, Levine will give tips on identifying trees in the winter. Participants should dress for the outdoors and bring snowshoes.

Inside Levine's house, participants will be able to learn more from her collection of scat and fur.

For the last 40 years, 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 Levine's book, "Mammal Tracks and Scat: Life-Size Pocket Guide."

Pre-registration with payment is required. Workshop is limited to 15 participants. Directions sent upon registering.
