Exploring Animal Tracks – Grey Rocks Conservation Area, Hebron NH

February 15 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Newfound Nature Station Invites All Animal Detectives!

Join the Newfound Lake Region Association (NLRA) as we explore animal tracks and other sign during Newfound Nature Station, a free program that connects youth and families to the natural world.   This event will be held at Grey Rocks Conservation Area at 178 N Shore Road, Hebron, NH on February 15 from 1pm to 3 pm and February 18 from 10 am to 12 pm. In winter it can be hard to spot wildlife as we look across the white landscape- some species have left for the winter, some are hibernating, and the rest seem to be hiding from the weather. But snow can hold the clues to finding out which animals have been visiting a location and what they’ve been doing! At Nature Station, NLRA educators will help visitors become animal detectives, searching for tracks and other sign to figure out what wildlife has been doing at Grey Rocks. You can learn about wildlife behavior in the Newfound Watershed without actually seeing the animals! Participants will also make a craft to take home. This program is free and open to all.

Newfound Nature Station, along with other family programs and events, is part of NLRA’s year-round work to encourage residents and visitors to enjoy the natural beauty around them, learn more about the environment and how to protect it, and fall in love with the Newfound Watershed.  By connecting the people of Newfound to the wonders around them, NLRA works to inspire the next generation of stewards and fulfill the mission of protecting Newfound Lake and its watershed.  Along with programs like Newfound Nature Station, NLRA maintains Grey Rocks Conservation Area in all seasons as a place for people and wildlife alike.  It offers walking trails, a picnic area, fishing alcoves, and a non-motorized boat launch and is frequented by wildlife like loons, turtles, and bald eagles as well as people.  Learn more about NLRA including other upcoming events at NewfoundLake.org.
