Bite marks on a tree, a trail of crushed leaves, footprints in the snow…who lives in your backyard? Learn to decipher the clues left behind with naturalist Trevanna Frost Grenfell and Sebasticook Regional Land Trust (SRLT) from 9 AM to 12 PM on Sunday, February 14th. This free, Valentine’s Day event is presented in partnership with Great Maine Outdoor Weekend.
Trevanna Frost Grenfell teaches wilderness skills with The Wildwood Path and enjoys animal tracking as part of a naturalist lifestyle. She has worked and volunteered as a tracker with a variety of organizations over the past 10 years. Grenfell is also coordinator of the Waldo County Trails Coalition working to connect Unity with Belfast via the Hills to Sea Trail.
Participants will get an opportunity to learn about their animal neighbors by visiting them in their own habitats. Following their tracks and signs that they leave behind reveals clues to who they are and what they are doing during the wintertime. Program leader Trevanna Frost Grenfell facilitated a popular wild edibles program at the SRLT’s Connor Mill Trail in 2015. To ensure a quality experience for all participants, space is limited and pre-registration is required. Participants should dress warmly and prepare to be standing still on cold ground. Hot drinks and a question and answer session to follow the walk, which will be at the Moulton’s Mill Preserve in Unity.
