Musketaquid Arts and Environment Program:
Wild Walks cosponsored by CLCT
In an effort to get more people, especially kids, out on the land, CLCT has partnered with Musketaquid Arts and the Environment to offer family "Wild Walks" on CLCT properties. Registration is through The Umbrella Arts at the link below.
Adventuring: Fire Starting, Winter Edibles,
Shelters and Cordage
Sunday, January 28th from 1:00pm - 3:00pm
Join survivalist Tim Swanson in Concord Land Conservation Trust’s Hallenbeck Land to learn the art of winter survival: what to eat, how to stay warm, and how to stay dry. You'll learn to use a bow drill and other tools to start a fire. In addition, learn to make cordage from natural fibers -- the ancient form of duct tape that comes in handy in any situation. See registration information below.
Tracking: Reading Wildlife and the Winter Woods
Sunday, February 11th from 1:00pm - 3:00pm
Andrew Joslin will teach us how to use both sight and sound (and sometimes smell) to interpret animal movements and behavior. In addition to recognizing common tracks, learn to observe wintering bird flock behaviors and study animal signs like burrows, digging, and pecking. Listen for animal sounds and communication -- what are they doing or saying? What can wind and weather tell us when we're in the woods? How does weather impact forest ecosystems and animal -- and our own -- decision-making in the winter woods? Geared to enthusiasts of all ages. See registration information below.
