New Lebanon, N.Y.: Outdoors expert to lead exploration of area’s wildlife

Friday October 19, 2012

Flying Deer Nature Center, a nonprofit organization providing year-round nature-education programming for all ages, launches its new Tracking Club for ages 18 and up on Saturday, Oct. 20.

The club is designed for adults looking to further their wilderness education and knowledge of the area’s wildlife. Led by Josh Wood, Flying Deer’s assistant director, participants will learn to identify animals by their tracks, recognize scat and other signs left by animals, and recognize animal gaits and track patterns. The club will explore locations throughout the New Lebanon and northern Berkshire County area.

More meetings will be held one Saturday each month from 9 a.m. to noon. Upcoming dates include Nov. 17 and Dec. 8.

A suggested donation of $5 to $15 will go toward future tracking events. For location information and to register, call (518) 794-6687, ext. 5.
