Learn about predators in the national park

Saturday, March 2, 9 a.m.—WOODSTOCK— Many kinds of predators rely on the national park for shelter and food. From the relatively large (eastern coyote) to the small (short-tailed shrew), all play their part in the park’s – and your backyard’s – ecosystem. Join us for this 1.5-hour workshop to learn how predators hunt to survive the cold winter months, and conversely, how their prey have adapted to survive.

National park service Science Communication Specialist Ed Sharron will lead an indoor discussion followed by an outdoor snowshoe exploration from 9-10:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 2.

Please dress appropriately for outdoor activity, and bring a water bottle and snowshoes if possible. Adult and children’s snowshoes are available if needed. Event will continue snow or shine!

Meet at the Forest Center, Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park in Woodstock.

Parking is available in the Billings Farm & Museum overflow lot, located on Old River Road in Woodstock.
