Have you ever seen a porcupine den up close? Join Aton Forest staff as they monitor dens. The search for active porcupine dens starts at 8:00 am, meeting at the forest headquarters, 270 North Colebrook Road. From there participants will head to den sites nearby. Be prepared for rough hiking conditions (wear appropriate winter hiking attire, especially good boots and micro-spikes or YakTrax, or snowshoes if the snow is deep). Coffee, tea and hot chocolate will be available and anyone can warm up anytime at the office.
Please RSVP so staff doesn’t miss you by calling or texting 860-248-1053, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, February 23. Call or text if you are going to be late.
