Tracking the Hidden Wildlife of Suburban Woodlands
The first part of a two-part program on finding, identifying and interpreting wildlife tracks and sign will present
slides and other artifacts that provide clues to the surprising array of “wilderness” animals living in our
conservation lands but hiding from us in the foliage and the night.
The second part will be three hours outdoors at one or another of Carlisle’s conservation properties. Exact
location and date, which depend on the expected weather and snow conditions, will be provided at the indoor
program where participants will be invited to sign up.
The programs are co-sponsored by the Carlisle Conservation Foundation and the Gleason Library. They are
free and open to the public. Please reserve for the indoor program by calling the library at 978 369 4898.
Tuesday evening, January 28, 7-8:30 pm at the Gleason Public Library, Carlisle, MA.
Saturday, February 1, 1-4pm at the Carlisle Cranberry Bog
Animal Tracking: What Visits Your Backyard?
Wild animals flee from us and hide in the night so that
most of their lives are hidden. By careful observation
of the tracks and sign they leave behind, we can
visualize their activities and learn a great deal about
their relationships with their environment. This is
"eco-tracking" that is, ecological animal tracking.
Wednesday, January 22, 7-8:30pm at the Acton
(MA) Memorial Library.
This indoor slide presentation is sponsored by the
Friends of the Acton Libraries. It is free and open to
Alewife Reservation Wildlife
David Brown will be the featured speaker at a presentation of the value of Alewife Reservation as an urban
wild. This 130 acre park is part of a larger ecosystem that provides habitat for a surprising variety of wild
animals such as coyote, fox, otter and deer as well as annually over 90 species of birds. Track and sign slides
will be accompanied by a description of the value of the area to wildlife and people.
Wednesday evening, Feb 26, 7pm at Lesley University, Porter Square, Cambridge, MA.
Tracking Warwick Wildlife
We will take a two-hour walk in the woods of
Warwick, Massachusetts, in search of the tracks

natural habitats surrounding us. In past years we
have found evidence of red and gray foxes,
coyotes, fishers and many other animals. This
program is free and open to area residents.
Please dress warmly with snowproof boots. Less
than a mile we be covered at a slow pace.
