LONDONDERRY >> A winter landscape offers an excellent opportunity to identify wild animals that have been in the area. Identifying animals by their tracks can be easy, but it is also deceptively tricky. On Tuesday, Feb. 23 at 10:30 a.m, Rick Ladue, from the Equinox Preservation Trust will discuss how to identify animals in the wild at The Meeting Place @ Neighborhood Connections. There is no charge to attend this lecture, but space is limited, so call 824-4343 to make a reservation.
