Early Spring Sensory Adventure

Thge American Woodcock is just one of the creatures you'll see on this explorati

An early-spring evening tantalizes all the senses.

Join us for an evening of outdoor exploration during which we will put all our senses to the test.

Finding Fishers

Fisher cats are cute, elusive and dangerous!  Find out all about them at IRWS!

Do fishers really fish? Why do some people call them fisher "cats"? Find answers to these questions and more as we take a look into the life of this crafty predator. We will begin our program by observing a fisher mount and learning about its life history. Then we'll hit the trails in search of fisher signs. Once we find a trail, we'll follow it to see if we can find a fisher food cache or perhaps a fisher itself!
