[UPDATE: Tomorrow’s tracking hike is postponed until Saturday, February 15. The weather prediction is warm and rainy — not conducive for a good tracking experience.
We are sorry for the change, but we want you to have the best tracking experience possible. We’ll announce the hike again in February and in the meantime, if you are interested in taking part, please call (518-962-2287) or email the CATS office to sign up for this half-day outing.]
We are partnering with the Friends of Poke-O-Moonshine to host a mammal and bird tracking hike/snowshoe on Saturday, January 11 at 9:30 AM. This will be a half-day outing to follow, identify, and discuss animal tracks along the southern flanks of Poke-O-Moonshine with naturalists David Thomas-Train and Elizabeth Lee.
The hike will involve off-trail exploring on snowshoes. Participants should dress warmly in non-cotton layers and bring sufficient liquids and food for a three-to-four hour hike. We will meet at the lower Poke-O-Moonshine trailhead, 1 mile south of the campground on Route 9.
