Winter Snow Animal Tracking at Ramblewild on Saturday January 14
The Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation and Ramblewild invite winter outdoor enthusiasts to join in a winter snow animal tracking program at Ramblewild in Lanesborough on Saturday January 14. The program will be led by naturalist and tracker Dan Yacobellis. Please note that tracking conditions are dependent on weather; if there is any snow overnight or in the morning, please call to confirm that the program is being held.
A family friendly walk for beginners will take place from 10 AM to noon. Dan will lead participants around the lodge area identifying tracks and signs of the deer, rabbits, mice, fox and birds that may have been through. Learn how to be a nature detective and to interpret the stories the tracks tell.
Those who wish to challenge themselves on the Ramblewild aerial course will have the opportunity at noon. Ticket discounts are available for WRLF members.
From 12:30 through 3:30 PM there will be a more in-depth tracking program for adults and children 8 years and older. Venture into the forest to look for some of our more secretive creatures, like Fisher and Bobcat, examine tracks more closely, and go a little deeper with interpretations.
Program cost is $5 per individual and $10 per family, WRLF members free. Reservations are required and space is limited.
In addition to being a naturalist and tracker, Dan Yacobellis is a student of native lore, culture, and life for over twenty years. He has been mentoring school children, at-risk teens and adults in primitive skills and nature awareness since 1997. He is a father of five.
