The Winter Tracking class is open to all skill levels and students 16 and older. The day will be predominantly experience based, offering guided ‘dirt time’ in which students can push their skills in real tracking situations. Trailing and interpretation will be a major theme for the weekend as we take in depth looks into the lives of the animals living in Vermont’s forests. Expect to cover a lot of snow in any weather conditions and to spend the full long days in the forests and fields tracking.
Learn to see and interpret the tracks and sign left behind by wildlife or humans. Trailing, aging, clear print identification, gait interpretation, sign tracking, we love all of it, and we love to teach it.
Understanding birds, their behavior and their language is a key to understanding the natural world at large. The eyes and ears of the forest, birds can be constantly keying us in to deeper levels of knowing what is happening around us, the health of the ecosystems, and linking layers of the ecosystem together in exciting ways.
