Learn Animal Tracking Rocky Woods Reservation Medfield MA

Learn Animal Tracking Rocky Woods Reservation Medfield MA


This is one event you don't want to miss!

For me, the Trustees of the Reservation is a big deal.   Not only do they provide fun and interesting places to go to enjoy nature in and around the Medfield MA area but they preserve, educate and offer opportunity to explore nature and the past. 

Most of you know how much I enjoy the outdoors, especially paddling the Charles River watching the wildlife that live there, admiring the plants and trees as they change throughout the seasons.    I owe a lot of that to the Trustees of the Reservation. 

So it comes as no surprise to me that the Trustees have some really fun events planned for this winter in the Medfield area.  

One of these is Winter Tracking at Rocky Woods!   On January 14th from Noon to 3 p.m.Tracks

Can you imagine learning to spot different animal species by their tracks and other clues they leave in the "wild"?    Well you can!   

And this is your opportunity to do just that.   It doesn't matter if you are new to tracking or just want to enhance your tracking skills.   Rocky Woods is the place for you to learn more!  

On January 14th from Noon to 3 p.m., Charley Eiseman from Northern Naturalists will be your teacher and guide for the afternoon at Rocky Woods Reservation off of Hartford Street in Medfield MA.



Imagine searching and learning the tracking skills that our ancestors used to track local mammal species.  A lost art in this day and age, but this will be your opportunity to learn something new or to enhance what you already know.    

Not just for beginners,  experienced trackers will also enjoy looking for anything from "moose to mink" in the woods of the reservation in Medfield.       By investigating animals foot prints and other traces, we can learn about these animals in their own habitat.  

It will also be a great opportunity to learn about the winter plants and trees and listen to bird song and vocalization! 

Get ready to get in on some outdoor fun!    To participate in this really interesting and pretty unique event, you must pre register.

  1. The Trustees of the Reservation also have many hiking areas in our area that make you feel like you are in the deep woods of New Hampshire. I hadn't realized that they offered great courses like this one.

    I have always wanted to learn how to identify animal tracks in the woods. Signing myself and my daughter up! Thanks for the great information.

    Thanks for sharing!
