Tracking is a lifelong study – this class will give you the tools to start down that road. Topics discussed will include clear print track identification, animal behavior and pattern tracking, landscape disturbance tracking, as well as human tracking, track aging, and tracking tools and journaling techniques.
Teaching-by-doing is our motto: this workshop will be 100% hands-on and is a truly excellent way to enrich your outdoors experience. Whether you are a backcountry hiker, or simply like to take strolls in the park, being able to read the landscape and understand your local fauna better makes every trip into the outdoors an investigation and adventure.
This class is about getting back to the earth, learning how our ancestors lived in harmony with our planet, and experiencing nature to its fullest. There is something here for everybody – come with an open mind and be ready to learn!
