    Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies presents Wildlife Tracking Workshop

    On Saturday, August 25 from 9:45 am to 2 pm, wetland biologist and educator Diane Boretos will lead a wildlife tracking workshop through the Outer Cape's Province Lands.

    Using animal footprints, scat and other indicators, participants will learn how to identify a variety of native Cape Cod mammals including red fox, eastern coyote, river otter, mink, meadow voles and shrews.

    Diane Boretos has been tracking wildlife in New England and in the Rocky Mountains for more than 15 years and has studied with master trackers such as Jim Halfpenny and Paul Rezendes. She is a certified Professional Wetland Scientist and the principal biologist and founder of Call of the Wild Consulting and Environmental Services.

    Participants should meet at the Beech Forest parking lot, just off Race Point Road. Bring lunch, water and insect repellent. A $5 donation is requested.

    For further details and reservations please contact Jesse Mechling at 508-487-3623 x103 or email jmechling@coastalstudies.org.
