ATHOL — On Saturday, Feb. 2 Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust will offer a Wildlife Tracking Workshop at Skyfields Arboretum with tracking expert Paul Wanta. The event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon, at the trust’s headquarters located at 1461 Old Keene Rd.

The group will explore the trails of the open meadows and into the woods of the Lawton State Forest while looking for signs of wildlife. The workshop teaches basic skills on how to spot, identify, and interpret different tracks found during the winter season. Cami Duquet, Communications and Engagement Coordinator said, “This is a great opportunity to catch a glimpse into a world that we might not otherwise be able to see.”

The Tracking Workshop has been put on by the trust for numerous winters. Last year, attendees were able to spot and follow signs of rabbits, deer, wild turkeys, and porcupine. All are welcome to attend. The event is free to Mount Grace members and $10 for non-members. Registration is required and can be done at or over the phone at 978-248-2055 x13.
