Tuesday, February 10, starting at 9:30 am -
Susan Fly and Donna Mackie of Bolton will lead a walk on the Oxbow N. W. Refuge. Gather at 9:30 am at the end of Still River Depot Road in Harvard for a two-hour leisurely walk while looking for birds, otters and other creature signs along the way. Susan and Donna are experienced trackers. Please, dress warmly. Because of the deep snow, snowshoes will be necessary (not skis). Bringing a drink and a snack is recommended. This event will take place, unless the roads conditions are poor.More tracking events and other programs are coming. However, with all this snow it's difficult to set dates. Previous walks had to be cancelled.
