Animal Tracking, DPNC

Animal Tracking presented by the Dennison Pequotsepos Nature Center

Zoom Presentation          March 6th @ 2:00 PM

What is animal tracking? Animal Tracking is the ability to gather evidence of local wildlife like tracks, scat & other animal sign, and then use these clues to interpret animal behavior and locate wildlife in the environment.

What Is A Track? A track is the impression of an animals foot after it walks in any soft substrate like sand, mud, silt or snow. Animal tracks tell the stories of the wild: winter snow or mud are ideal conditions for spotting tracks.

 

In this Zoom presentation you will learn to identify the tracks of local wildlife as well as how to interpret the stories they tell. In addition, you will also meet an owl who leaves telltale tracks behind from a hunt!

Presented by the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center in Mystic, CT. Founded in 1946, DPNC provides environmental education programming for all ages on a wide variety of natural history and environmental science topics.
This program is sponsored by the
Friends of the Lyme Library and the Lyme Land Trust.

Please email programreg@lymepl.org to register. You will be sent the Zoom link several days before the program.

The Other Side of the Ice

The Other Side of the Ice
One Family's Treacherous Journey Negotiating the Northwest Passage
Sprague Theobald
ZOOM Presentation
March 20th @ 3:00 PM

Sprague Theobald, an award-winning documentary filmmaker and expert sailor with more than 40,000 offshore miles under his belt, always considered the Northwest Passage—the sea route connecting the Atlantic to the Pacific—the ultimate uncharted territory. Since Roald Amundsen completed the first successful crossing of the fabled Northwest Passage in 1906, only twenty-four pleasure craft have followed in his wake. From his home port of Newport, Rhode Island, through the Passage and around Alaska to Seattle, it would be an 8,500-mile trek filled with constant danger from ice, polar bears, and severe weather.

What Theobald couldn’t have known was just how life-changing his journey through the Passage would be. Unrelenting cold, hungry polar bears, and a haunting landscape littered with sobering artifacts from the tragic Franklin Expedition of 1845 make The Other Side of the Ice a harrowing story of survival, adventure, and, ultimately, redemption.
