Whether you are new to hunting, foraging, or exploring Maine’s forests and wild places, developing solid woods skills is important. You will likely enjoy yourself much more, and make stronger connections to the outdoors if you have a better understanding of the various habitats and the wildlife that calls these places home. As a hunter, it’s important to be able to understand what makes a good habitat for the game you seek, and as a naturalist, you need to understand these same principles. Not all woodlots or forests are created equal, and when you can identify some of the important components that make these habitats valuable to individual species, you’ll likely become more successful.
This workshop will be led mostly on snowshoes as we navigate through the forest for tracks and unravel the story of what animals are moving about, and learn the where what, and why they are here.
Our workshop will conclude around a campfire where we can reflect on our experience with time for questions and sharing stories. Participants are encouraged to bring a light lunch or snack to enjoy during that time.
