Winter Wildlife Tracking Workshop
February 26 - February 27$200.00
Wildlife Tracking enables us to have a deeper understanding of the animals and how they relate to the environment. This experience is designed to provide you with a base for your tracking knowledge to grow from.
Learning the art and science of tracking opens up a whole new way of looking at the natural world that surrounds us. Skilled trackers can gain an astounding amount of information from the clues left behind by a person, animal or event. At this two-day workshop you will learn the basics of wildlife tracking including track identification, track patterns and gait interpretation (how an animal is moving), sign tracking, natural history and animal biology/behavior). Through our study of these tracking principles, participants will gain a deeper understanding of how these animals relate to their environment and play a vital role in maintaining a balanced ecosystem. You will also go away with a new understanding of not only the animals we track, but also how to share this new information with your friends, family and students.
During this weekend workshop you will learn the basics of wildlife tracking including:
- Track identification
- How to properly measure tracks
- Journaling tracks and sign
