Many wild animals that we think of as living only in remote wilderness have, in recent years, filtered into urban settings and are using parks like Fresh Pond as hunting grounds and refuges.

Although these animals, hiding in the night or in foliage, are seldom seen directly, their presence can be detected by the tracks and signs they leave behind.

Tracker David Brown leads a program using slides and plaster casts to familiarize you with some of this evidence so that you can go out and look for yourself.

If the conditions are good, we will also go outside to look for prints, so please dress accordingly. You must register for this program.
