Postponed: Winter tracking walk 2017
February 18 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Postponed to Sat Feb 18th!
A winter walk in the country with members of Nature Newfoundland and Labrador.
Traditionally, Nature NL annually leads a winter field trip on snowshoes–when conditions are suitable.
This year, we plan a trip to practice our ability to identify animals by their tracks (mammals and birds) and trees and shrubs by their leaf-bud patterns using keys and guides.
When: Saturday, February 18, 2017 at 10 AM
Meet: Parking area off Old Broad Cove Road about 1.3 km west of Portugal Cove Road, across from Maggies Place, next to the community mailbox location.
Rating and description: About 4-5 km, 1-1.5 hours, of good, easy trails.
Comments: Quads and snow machines have been using some of the trails we plan to follow but other trails have only had few snowshoers or skiers since late January snow falls. At the time of writing, snowshoes would be an asset but hiking boots with ice grippers are suitable. That could change, given our unpredictable weather.
