Winter ecology program announced

| January 29, 2023 1:00 AM

Area residents are invited to share a winter day studying the interactions of area wildlife with their environment.

Participants will meet at 9 a.m. Mountain Time on Saturday, Feb. 11, at the Venture Inn, 1015 U.S. 2, Libby. After a review of handouts describing animal tracking methods, winter birding strategies, and evergreen identification, participants will head into the field.

The group will visit different areas to search for tracks and signs of wildlife, and identify birds, and evergreen and deciduous vegetation.

Participants should come with gas tanks, proper layers, lunch, water, good boots, snowshoes if you have them, hats and gloves, cameras, binoculars, and ski poles can be helpful walking in deep snow.

This is an adult class and all participants must pre-register. No pets.
