In this introductory class you will learn how to identify the tracks of common local animals. And then learn how to determine such things as the size of the animal, when it made the tracks, how fast it was moving, how different substrates affect the tracks, and where the next track should be located. Tracking adds a new level of awareness to your world since it adds stories to the landscape. And soon you will impress your friends when you can show them the difference between coyote and dog tracks.

Class time will be divided into some classroom instruction in a covered pavilion followed by lots of field work. We will have several hundred acres available with lots of different environments to search for tracks and other signs, so be prepared for some hiking. Bring water, lunch and a notebook.

  1. I am a first time Wild Intelligence user, although I have heard about it for years and admire the classes offered. Will someone let me know how to get to the site? Thanks.
