Track­ing the mam­mals

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY -

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.

For more in­for­ma­tion on this or up­com­ing tours and work­shops, con­tact Daniel McRae at 902-651-2575, visit www. macphail­woods.org or go to Face­book.
