Isinglass River Conservation Reserve, Strafford
Winter conditions offer a great opportunity to explore clues that plants, animals, weather and other natural forces leave behind after a growing season, and over time. Frank Mitchell will lead a group examining the ways plants and animals survive winter, seeking examples in animal tracks and signs and in plant adaptations. Participants will consider how the forest we see today can inform us about its history and its probable future. The afternoon will also feature discussion of how a partnership between Bear-Paw, the Town of Strafford, TPL, and others allowed a rather large conservation project to protect this area.
