Vermont Woodlands Association and the Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation are inviting you to take a monthly excursion into Vermont’s forests, county by county. The monthly walks in the woods will be led by county foresters, consulting foresters, and natural resource professionals to showcase the wonders and enjoyment of Vermont’s lush forests. Participants are encouraged to wear sturdy walking shoes or boots.

                        Upcoming Walks:
                        Walk in the Woods with Lynn Levine: Tracking & Trees
                        January 16, 2016
                        Nature Conservancy Land, Dummerston, VT

                        Join Lynn Levine for a workshop on Saturday, January 16, from 9:00AM-12:30 PM in the woods of the Nature Conservancy on Black Mountain, a unique geological treasure, located in Dummerston, VT.
                        Participants will learn to think like the animals they are tracking and connect with the forested landscape which includes Red Cedar Relics. Participants should dress for the outdoors and bring snowshoes. Lynn has extra snow shoes so just let us know. Inside, Lynn will share her collection of scat and fur. Please bring bagged lunch.

                        For the last 37 years, Lynn Levine has been an environmental educator, tracker and a consulting forester. Lynn has taken thousands of people into the forest. All workshop participants will be provided with their own copy of Lynn’s book, Mammal Tracks and Scat: Life-Size Pocket Guide. Register here.
