BRIDGTON — The Loon Echo Land Trust and Maine Master Naturalist Leigh Hayes will guide participants in the art of animal tracking on Saturday, Dec. 12, at Bald Pate Mountain.

Trackers will discover the clues of animal presence such as tracks, scat and other signs. December can be cold and dreary, but Leigh always finds something interesting to learn about in the forests.

The program is open to all ages. Trackers will meet at 10 a.m. at Bald Pate Mountain’s parking lot on Route 107.

This moderate hike will take approximately three hours, and participants should be prepared with appropriate warm clothing, sturdy hiking shoes or boots, water and plenty of snacks. This hike will be canceled in the event of heavy rain or inclement weather.
