Published DateMOULTONBOROUGH — A Winter Mammal Tracking Workshop will be held Saturday, February 23 from 9:30 a.m. until noon at the Loon Center.
Join biologist Chris Conrod at the Loon Center as he shares his knowledge in tracking mammals. The Markus Wildlife Sanctuary has a myriad of mammal inhabitants and winter is the best time to see what they're up to.
In this introductory workshop you will learn to identify mammal prints and track patterns, (gaits) and learn why we find a certain species where we do. Please bring snowshoes if able.
Admission is free.
On Thursday, Feb. 28 from 3-4 p.m. come by the Loon Center and enjoy an hour of storytelling with Angela Klingler, an award winning storyteller who weaves traditional world folktales, mythology, Native American, regional legends, and history with humor and wit.
Her stories are, "Alternately wise and funny, silly and poignant," writes The Yukon News.
The program is free for members and $5 for non-members.
The Loon Center is filled with interactive displays for adults and children alike and its full size taxidermy loons are displayed for close inspection. It also offers a gift shop and visitors can enjoy the well-marked walking trails starting from the parking lot.
