Bobcats in Vermont

Saturday, February 1, 2014, 9:45 am to 5 pm

One of the premier naturalists in the Northeast, Dr. Alcott Smith will lead this adventure into the wilds of Vermont in search of Bobcat track and sign. Alcott has a passion and reverence for the indigenous animals of northern New England, and his programs bring to life an animalís vital relationship with its habitat. Bobcats have been a special passion for Alcott, and this trip will take you into an area where he has followed the lives of these fascintating animals for many years. Hiking will be in very rough and wild terrain where there are no trails, so be prepared for a challenging, strenuous and physically demanding day. Snowshoes will be required. This full day of immersion in the winter world will be an experience you will not forget.
