Acton Conservation Trust welcomes members and friends for our annual winter tracking walk led by Paul Wanta. We will walk along Nashoba Brook on the trails of North Acton. This area is the largest contiguous parcel of protected land in Acton, comprising 400+ acres.This will be a slow walk of 1-2 miles. This event is perfect for families, but no pets please! Dress warmly… wear several layers and bring a hat and gloves. We will have hot beverages and other refreshments at the end of the event.

In past years we have seen the tracks of deer, otter, rabbits, bobcats, racoons, squirrels, mice, and owl wings!

A tracker for over 25 years, Paul studied with John Stokes of The Tracking Project, based in Albuquerque, NM, and participated in The Tracking Project’s mentor program.  Paul also studied with Paul Rezendes’ programs in tracking in Royalston, MA, including two years with Rezendes in his Tracking Apprenticeship Program for advanced studies in tracking. Paul was a tracker, teacher and naturalist for 8 years with The Farm School in Athol, leading youth classes in tracking and nature awareness. He also taught shelter building, tracking, fire making and other traditional skills to 10-13 year-olds.
