Weekend Update

Photo copyright Wendy KlixNo blizzard in the forecast … all the more reason to get outside and enjoy yourself during this holiday weekend. Here’s just a taste of what we have to offer.

  • If you can walk, you can snowshoe! During Snowshoeing for Families at Broad Meadow Brook in Worcester, we’ll teach you how to use snowshoes and how to look for signs of wildlife before heading out onto the trails.  (registration required)
  • What do you do if you find an orphaned baby squirrel or if a baby bird falls out of its nest? Educators from Wild Care, the emergency wildlife rehabilitation center, will share their stories during Rescuing Baby Animals at Wellfleet Bay on Saturday. After, we’ll make a rescue box for injured animals. (registration required)
  • Over 30 resident mammals and birds leave tracks at Wachusett Meadow in Princeton. During Beginner Tracking and Animal Signs for Adults, learn to identify a dozen animals by their tracks and help collect information on sanctuary wildlife and habitats. (registration required)
  • Join Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary in Natick for an Owl Prowl under the moon and stars. We’ll walk through fields and forests listening for our resident screech and great horned owls. (registration required)
  • Deer, rabbits, turkeys, opossums, and coyotes are just a few of the animals that live in our area. Join us for an easy Winter Wildlife Hike at the Boston Nature Center and discover the signs left behind from wildlife found in this 67-acre wildlife sanctuary. (registration encouraged)
  • Got Presidents’ Day off? Start it with an exhilarating Holiday Hike along Stony Brook’s trails. After, we’ll head into the Nature Center to warm up with a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. (registration required)
