CATS Tracking Hike on Pok-O-Moonshine
February 15, 2014 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm
[This event was originally scheduled for Jan. 11, but the weather prediction was warm and rainy — not conducive for a good tracking experience.]
CATS is partnering with the Friends of Poke-O-Moonshine to host a mammal and bird tracking hike/snowshoe. This will be a half-day outing to follow, identify, and discuss animal tracks along the southern flanks of Poke-O-Moonshine with naturalists David Thomas-Train and Elizabeth Lee.
The hike will will involve off-trail exploring on snowshoes. Participants should dress warmly in non-cotton layers and bring sufficient liquids and food for a three-to-four hour hike. We will meet at the lower Poke-O-Moonshine trailhead, 1 mile south of the campground on Route 9. It would be helpful to let us know if you plan to attend.
