Join us at Beartown State Forest for a FREE 3-hour guided exploration in search of signs of wildlife. Enjoy a mid-winter’s day exploring nearby woodlands, marshes and streams. See what local wildlife has been up to. Journey off-trail, less than 2-miles, at a leisurely pace with some rough terrain and likely stream crossings.

If there’s enough snow bring your own snowshoes, or traction devices and hiking poles. Dress accordingly for the cold weather.
