Who's Active in our Forests, Fields, Ponds and Streams? NRWA Wildlife Workshop
Winter is turning to spring, and wildlife is stirring. Come see who is active and what they're doing during Nashua River Watershed Association's three hour in-depth wildlife workshop on Saturday, April 4, 2015, 1- 4p.m., at the Williams Barn Conservation Property and the Chestnut Hills trail area in Groton.
Program for adults and children ages 11 and up will focus on four distinct habitats and the animals that survive and thrive there after a challenging winter season. Develop a greater understanding of these hardy inhabitants and learn to "read" their stories through the signs and clues we discover along the way.
Participants will get an up close look at an extensive collection of animal mounts, skins, skulls and tracking prints as well as an introduction to a variety of habitats in water and on land. We'll explore forests, fields and wetlands looking for animal activity to gain a better understanding of the predator / prey relationship in each featured habitat.
