Naturalist Kirk Gentalen speaks about how to identify animal tracks in winter at Merryspring Nature Center on Tuesday, January 29 at 12:00 p.m.


Winter is a great season to learn about local wildlife. Fresh snow captures animal tracks, tunnels, and trails- providing lessons untaught in any other seasons. Gentalen leads this indoor program with slides, stories, and tricks for tracking winter animals in midcoast Maine.


Gentalen has worked for over 25 years as a naturalist and environmental educator in over 13 states. He currently serves as a steward and naturalist for Maine Coast Heritage Trust, and is the writer and editor of the “Vinalhaven Sighting Report” blog and “Nature Bummin’” column for the St George Dragon community journal. He lives in St. George, Maine.


This lecture is part of the Winter Talk series, sponsored by Allen Insurance and Financial. Admission to Tuesday Talks is $5, with free admission granted for Merryspring members.
