Snow http://nhpr.org en Sick Of Snow? Use It To Track Some Winter Wildlife! http://nhpr.org/post/sick-snow-use-it-track-some-winter-wildlife <p>While it may be March, it’s still very much wintertime. If you’ve been cursing the snow and ice and desperately longing for spring, you’re not alone. But let’s look at the bright side - all that frozen water offers certain opportunities that just aren’t available in the spring. And I’m not talking about expensive and time consuming snow-sports, I’m talking about wildlife tracking. To give you an introduction to tracking, We&nbsp; headed for the woods of Barrington, New Hampshire with <strong>Dan Gardoqui, </strong>one of the founders and directors of <a href="http://www.whitepineprograms.org/" target="_blank">White Pine Programs</a>, a nature connection non-profit in Southern Maine.</p><p> Thu, 06 Mar 2014 18:09:14 +0000 Logan Shannon & Sam Evans-Brown 44629 at http://nhpr.org Sick Of Snow?

That's probably a sore subject for many in New England this time of year, but in the woods, snow is not an enemy--a scourge to be shoveled, scraped and plowed out of the way. In nature, snow is a trusted ally to plants <em>and</em> wildlife. Snow acts as a blanket, a source of camouflage,<span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;a form of concealment,&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;and even a sponge.&nbsp;</span></p><p> Fri, 31 Jan 2014 05:00:00 +0000 Dave Anderson 42584 at http://nhpr.org Snow: An Ally For Winter Survival N.H.
