Audubon event set for Saturday

Learn how to read animal tracks in the snow from our local expert, Jason Stuck. Living in the Pagosa area, we often see signs of our resident, yet elusive winter wildlife. Only by developing some tracking skills will we be able to identify what animals made those tracks and understand what they were up to. This skill can really increase your enjoyment of a winter’s day while skiing, snowshoeing, or just out for a walk.

Join us for this fun and educational outdoor event on Saturday, Feb. 12 at the Hershey Ranch. The local Audubon chapter will sponsor this event which is free and open to the public. Participants will have to be able to snowshoe and provide their own equipment. Be sure to dress for the weather! Our pets will have to sit this one out; they already know all this stuff anyway!

Registration will be at 9:30 a.m., with the event starting at 10 a.m. and ending by 1 p.m. Parking is limited at the Hershey Ranch, so car pools will be organized at 9:30 a.m. at the U.S. Forest Service office on U.S. 160 at Second Street. Participants are expected to provide their own snowshoes, food, water and appropriate cold weather attire.

For questions, WAS board member Mike Ward may be contacted at 731-9151.
