Naturalist Dan Yacobellis will lead a wildlife tracking workshop in Hopkins Memorial Forest from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16.

The program will teach participants how to identify and interpret the tracks of some of the wild animals of the Berkshires, including rabbit, squirrel, fisher, fox, coyote, deer, and more.

The group will follow the tracks of one or two animals in order to gain an intimate glimpse into their habits, preferences and interactions with the land and other animals.

The program will begin at the Rosenburg Center near the entrance to Hopkins Forest on Northwest Hill Road. Participants should bring lunch and water and should dress very warmly, as most of the program will take place outdoors.

The program is free, however space is limited and reservations are required by contacting Drew Jones at ajones@williams.edu or (413) 597-4353..
