Signs of Life on a Winter's Day

Join Karen Linder of the Friends of Princeton Nursery Lands for a walk through the fields of the Mapleton Preserve to look for signs of life in the winter landscape—be they plants, animals or birds, evidence of feeding, tracks or scat. It will likely be cold, and may be snowy or muddy, so dress for the weather. Hot chocolate will be served after the walk.

The walk will take place on Saturday, February 21, 2015, from 2 to 3:30 pm. It is free and all are welcome, but preregistration is requested. For more information and to register, call 609-683-0483. Mapleton Preserve/D&R Canal State Park Headquarters is located at 145 Mapleton Road in Kingston.
