  • 4 Maude Adams Road, Tannersville, NY 12485

Programs at 10 AM and 12:30 PM  Pre-registration is required.

Cost of Admission: Members Free, suggested donation of $10 for non-members.

This is an in-person event! Programs limited to 16 participants. 

Join experienced tracker Dan Yacobellis as we explore habitats within the Arboretum to find animal tracks and clues that reveal a wealth of information about local wildlife. Dan will teach us to identify animals by their tracks, recognize scat and other animal signs, and recognize animal gaits and patterns. We will be able to piece together stories from the information that we gather and gain insight into these animals' lives. All are welcome—beginners and experienced trackers alike! (Dress in more layers than you would for a regular hike and be sure to wear proper footwear- we will alternate between levels of moderate exertion and periods of standing still while discussing tracks).

Dan Yacobellis has been working with school children, teens and adults since 1997. Dan Created Tamakoce Wilderness Programs in 2006 and runs programs on topics including tracking, friction fire making and other primitive skills for centers and organizations throughout the capital district, western Mass., the Adirondacks and Vermont. He also teaches a Winter Study course on Animal Tracking at Williams College. Dan has been a naturalist, tracker and student of native lore, culture, and life for over 30 years.
