It's the most wonderful time of the year ...

Chris Maron, executive director of the Conservation Partnership, said Morse visited nearly a decade ago and drew a large audience.

"When she was here in 2001, we had an overflow audience of over 260 people who enjoyed seeing the furs and discovering ways to find signs of animal activity," Maron said. "They especially liked her beautiful pictures and listening to stories illustrating an extensive knowledge and sometimes controversial ideas about wildlife."

Westport naturalist and guide Elizabeth Lee echoed Maron's comments.

"The Keeping Track Wildlife Event gives people, especially families, an opportunity to enjoy an educational and inspiring evening," Lee said. "Full-time residents, visitors, loggers, hikers, hunters, farmers, teachers, nature enthusiasts, and anyone interested in the outdoors will appreciate learning more about the Champlain Valley's wildlife."

Maron said the program was made possible with help from the Northeast Wilderness Trust, the Adirondack Council, Champlain National Bank, Dogwood Bread Company, and Elizabeth Lee.
