STORIES IN THE SNOW: NRWA Afterschool Tracking Program for Children
Winter animals tell tales of adventure and survival through signs they leave behind: footprints, chew marks, food middens, and even scat!
During January, Nashua River Watershed Association's Eco-Adventure Afterschool Series led by River Classroom Director Stacey Chilcoat explores the exciting world of animal tracking. Children ages 9-12 will learn how to identify some of our most common animal neighbors by their footprints, hike local trails looking for signs of activity, make plaster castings of animal footprints, play animal games and create their own personal pocket tracking guide to take home.
After a cold outdoor activity, we'll come inside to share Native American stories while sipping on warm cocoa.
Program meets Wed., Jan. 7, 14, 21, and 28, 3:30-5:30 p.m., at NRWA River Resource Center, 592 Main St., Groton. Fee: $100/ NRWA members, $125/non-members; siblings receive a 25% discount. Open to children ages 9-12 from all communities. Space limited, reservations required. To register, or for more info contact NRWA River Classroom Director Stacey Chilcoat (978) 448-0299, or email StaceyC@NashuaRiverWatershed.org.
