Join Tin Mountain for an exploration of the organization’s 228-acre Jackson Field Station property. Terrain includes mixed hardwoods, spruce-fir forests, several ponds, and the oldest tin mine in America! We’ll investigate what animals have been enjoying the area through tracks, scat, and other animal signs. Fox tracks, deer and moose browse, middens, and bear excavation are just some of the signs we’ll encounter.
Tin Mountain often offers snowshoeing and skiing programs into the Rockwell Sanctuary in Albany and the Brownfield Bog, but it has been several years since a winter program has explored the Jackson property. Come see where Tin Mountain Conservation Center got its start over thirty years ago.
Participants will meet in the lower parking lot at the Jackson Field Station at 10am. The trip will cover roughly three-miles round trip over easy to moderate terrain. Participants are urged to wear boots appropriate for snowshoeing, bring water and a lunch, as well as dress warm. Cost to non-members is $3/person and $5/family; members are free; no dogs, please. You may bring your own snowshoes or borrow ours. Please call the TMCC office at 447-6991 to make reservations.
This program is sponsored in part by L.L. Bean and the Evenor Armington Foundation, and the Residence Inn by Marriott North Conway.
