MEMBERS ONLY | SORRY, this Class is full!

Not always intended as recreation, snowshoes can make winter walking much easier when the snow is too deep to traverse. Snow also serves as an excellent medium for beginners in animal tracking, an important skill that can be used to understand the animal populations that are present in an ecosystem. Join us on a (hopefully) snowy day to learn about modern animal tracking techniques, including identifying prints and looking for signs of wildlife in the winter. If there is no snow, we will continue with animal tracking lesson using the soil and mud. The morning will conclude with a look and discussion into the snowshoes of OSVs collection,  housed in the Fitch Barn. Please come prepared to be outside for roughly 2 hours. Winter boots and clothing are recommended.

About the Woods and Fields: Outdoor Education at Old Sturbridge Village Series:

Join Old Sturbridge Village staff and environmental experts once a season for a 2-hour workshop delving into different topics surrounding environmental stewardship, ecology, and natural history. Classes will take place on the grounds of Old Sturbridge Village, giving members a chance to closely explore the habitats, animals, fungi, plants, and landscapes that create the many diverse ecosystems present at OSV. Each class will meet at the Visitor Center, and we ask that you please come prepared to be outside for the duration of the workshop.
