January 20, 2013 10- 12:00 noon
Guided by trackers Gerry & Gail Coffey, we will look for track and signs of coyote, mink, fisher, otter, porcupine, moose, deer and bear. Learn how these animals adapt and survive in winter. Tracking is a great way to learn about the diversity of wildlife in the area and gain greater insights about their behavior.
Wear warm clothing in layers, warm socks and boots. Snowshoes, crampons and hiking poles may be useful for this off-trail hiking. Bring water and an energy snack. Meet at Rocky Pond Road parking area 1.7 miles north of the intersection with Route 130 in Hollis NH. $10.

“I cannot recommend strongly enough the importance and outright fun that this class can deliver. I have signed up for a top bar hive as a result and can hardly wait to roll down my sleeves and become a member of the bee keeping world. If you have ever thought that you might want to know more about tending wild bees and are looking for a perspective that draws the best from age-old practices and explores the newest methodologies of organic bee keeping, this is the class for you. Enjoy!”
“I just attended Christy’s Weekend Intensive bee class and found it to be a perfect introduction to the fine art of bee keeping. Christy’s style lends itself to a class full of exploration into the fascinating life of the honey bee. I learned how important this insect is to sustaining our agricultural and natural systems and how imperiled they are by the same practices that have brought industrial agriculture to the unsustainable place it now occupies.”
