Not just a walk in the woods, the Branford Land Trust's popular Animal Tracking classes are led enthusiastically by naturalists Tom Cleveland and Chris Woerner each winter. Learn how to recognize animal footprints and other signs of their passage through the woods during two Animal Tracking Classes scheduled for Saturday, January 29 and Saturday, February 26 from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at the Lake Saltonstall Recreational Area. We'll hope for snow, but it will be fun even without it! This program is fun for both kids and adults.

Expect moderate terrain, some sloping trails and inclines, rocky underfooting. Parents should be prepared to carry younger children if they get tired. Please wear appropriate dress and comfortable, supportive walking shoes. Bring water. Walking sticks welcome. We'll meet at the fishing area parking lot off of Hosley Avenue in Branford. The address is 100 Hosley Avenue and it is located approximately halfway down Hosley Avenue off of Route 1 to the south and Brushy Plain Road to the north.

Bad Weather dates: January 30 and February 27. Watch our Facebook page for possible schedule changes. For questions please call Tom Cleveland @ 203-981-9040.
