An Evening with Porcupines

6 pm – 8:30 pm in Marlboro

Please register at

For the past five years, BEEC naturalist Patti Smith has been getting to know the porcupines in the woods near her home in Marlboro. If the weather gods are smiling, the setting sun will draw two or more porcupines from their dens to lounge. We will have an opportunity to observe their wake-up routines, grooming, and social interactions before they waddle off into the night forest. Patti will share what she has learned of porcupine biology and ecology. We will also observe the other small mammals that frequent this ledge site. Other possible treats include the distant choruses of peepers and migrating geese.

The hike to the site is 0.7 mile and involves some steep terrain. Pack a picnic. Hot beverages will be provided.
