Belfast — Registered Maine Guide and naturalist Sandra Mitchell will talk about "Learning to Read Tracks, and Using Them to Enter the Secret Lives of Wild Animals” on Monday, March 4, at Belfast Free Library.

Co-sponsored by Friends of Sears Island and the library, her free presentation will take place at 6:30 p.m. in the library's Abbott Room at 106 High St. All are welcome.

Mitchell 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.

An avid amateur naturalist, Mitchell is a Certified CyberTracker, and enjoys investigating natural mysteries. Her website is https://www.wildlynxnature.com/.
