Tracking the mammals
Come out for a free workshop on the mammals of Prince Edward Island at 10 a.m. on Saturdayat the Macphail Woods Nature Centre in Orwell.
The walk and talk will begin with a slideshow introducing some of the basics of tracking, from prints to feeding signs to scat as well as providing a survey of native and introduced mammals of P.E.I. It will also look at some of the mammals historically found on P.E.I., which have since been extirpated.
After the presentation, participants will head off to the woods looking at a variety of animal tracks and signs. Make sure to bring clothes suitable to weather conditions. There is no admission for the workshop and everyone is welcome.
This workshop is just one in an extensive series of outdoor activities at Macphail Woods, a project of the Environmental Coalition of Prince Edward Island.
