Mammal Wildlife Tracking 

What’s in your backyard? Tracking activities, presentations, and mounted animal exhibit followed by an afternoon tracking hike on the sanctuary.  Dress for the weather, bring water, lunch and snack. For more information, contact Paula Coughlin, Coordinator at paulacoughlin@charter.net.

Introductory Tracking Hike
Saturday, December 2
9 a.m.–1 p.m. at the Center at Pomfret’s Bafflin Sanctuary
Fee: $25 Connecticut Audubon members; $35 non-members.

You may have seen the tracks of a red fox or a fisher in mud or snow. Maybe, you’re lucky and caught a glimpse of a coyote. Connecticut’s forests provide excellent habitat for local wildlife.  Our experienced Citizen Science Volunteers monitor sites in Woodstock, Willington, and Canterbury seasonally, always on the lookout for track and sign of fisher, river otter, mink, moose, black bear, and bobcat.

You are welcome to begin or continue training to become a Citizen Science wildlife monitor by attending training hikes that suit your schedule throughout the year.

For information about all Citizen Science Volunteer Monitoring Program projects and training, contact Paula Coughlin, Citizen Science Coordinator, 860-928-4948 or email pcoughlin@ctaudubon.org
