We (formerly Nashaway Trackers) are a group of volunteer animal trackers in the eastern portion of Central Massachusetts. Our mission is to inspire a greater appreciation for wildlife in our community, while having fun exploring local woodlands, wetlands, shrublands, and fields.

We teach people to read the footprints and other signs that our wild neighbors leave behind as they go about their daily and nightly business. This helps people to understand how animals interact with the environment, to value their existence, and to recognize the importance of conserving their habitats.

Our current membership draws from the towns of east-central Massachusetts. We welcome new members, both beginners and experienced trackers, from any location, to participate in or observe any of our events.  Please see our blog at: Trackers' Blog, where wildlife enthusiasts can share photos and stories, compare notes, and trade suggestions.
