Winter/Spring 2018: Upcoming Talks & Workshops for Adults

Now in its sixth season, our year-long speaker series promises to engage our community of lifelong learners and those interested in expanding their understanding of the natural world. Our first two events include a "talk" followed by a "walk". Chris Bernier of Vermont Fish and Wildlife will be on hand to detail his knowledge of the surprising return of the marten to Vermont. He will speak to attendees Thursday, February 8th at the NewsBank Conference Center in Chester, Vermont.

The following Saturday, February 10th, Bernier will graciously lead an animal tracking workshop at his private residence in Andover. This workshop will include moderate hiking and it's a fantastic excuse to pull out your snowshoes and to learn by doing. We expect this workshop to fill quickly, so if you're interested--- grab your spot! 

To learn more about Chris's talk, please see our recent blog post, which provides a little backstory for the American (formally know as pine) marten, a relative of the fisher.
