Sears Island — Friends of Sears Island and Carver Memorial Library will co-sponsor a live Zoom presentation titled "Learning to Read Tracks, and Using Them to Enter the Secret Lives of Wild Animals” by Sandra Mitchell Tuesday, March 2, at 6:30 p.m.

Mitchell, a naturalist, and certified wildlife CyberTracker, follows the tracks and signs of animals through the snow and the mud to learn more about their lives during the winter. Her presentation aims to give participants enough information to go out and investigate what the animals in their yards are doing this winter.

She will discuss most of the major species of wildlife people can expect to see in their yards and the woods of Maine. This includes not only tracks, but the signs associated with animals and their travels, such as browse, scat, dens, burrows, nests, and more.

Mitchell is a registered Maine guide and an avid amateur naturalist. Her website is To register for this free Zoom presentation, visit
