Flying Deer Nature Center will offer a wildlife tracking program at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 31, at the New Lebanon Library, 550 State Route 20.

Naturalist Josh Wood will present a slideshow designed to help participants begin the process of familiarizing themselves with the tracks of the local animal world. Participants will also learn to recognize the signs of a variety of common animals in the woods.

This program, which is appropriate for adults, teens, and older school-aged children, is free and open to the public.

Wood is the assistant director at Flying Deer Nature Center. He teaches primitive outdoor skills and naturalist studies to kids of all ages as well as runs a local Tracking Club for adults that meets in areas around New Lebanon on a monthly basis.
