Westborough Community Land Trust holds tracking program Jan. 14

Westborough– Westborough Community Land Trust (WCLT) will be hosting Tracking the Wildlife of Little Chauncy Pond Saturday, Jan. 14, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at Chauncy Hall Academy, 187 Lyman St. Space is limited and those interested in taking part should e-mail events@westboroughlandtrust.org.

Think you never see any animals when you’re out hiking? Think again. Janet Pesaturo of Nashaway Trackers will teach participants to see the animals that are out there by the footprints, fur and food they leave behind. Learn to find and identify the local wildlife by their tracks, sign, and habitat, and to interpret the clues of their behavior to piece together the animals’ story.

The areas surrounding Little Chauncy provide a wide array of habitats, from forests and fields to swamps and wet meadows, and you may see evidence of rabbits, deer, squirrels, coyote and otters.

The tracking program is suitable for adults and older kids, from beginner to intermediate. No dogs, please. The pace will be slow, so dress warmly in bright-colored clothing. Waterproof boots or snowshoes may be useful. Park at Chauncy Hall Academy on Lyman Street on the right (look for the sign).
