Fiera Biological is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a Wildlife Snow-tracking Workshop in Edmonton, Alberta. The workshop will consist of a two-hour classroom session during the evening of Friday December 1, 2017, and a half-day in the field on Saturday, December 2, 2017.

This workshop is for anyone interested in learning how to identify wildlife snow tracks. Ideal for the beginner,  the workshop will cover the basics of snow track identification, but is also likely to offer something to even the most experienced wildlife tracker.

Registration: This workshop will be limited to 12 individuals. To register, email Joseph Litke at jlitke[at]fieraconsulting.ca. Spots will be filled on a first-come basis.

When & Where:

  • Classroom Session: Friday, December 1, 2017 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. This session will be held at the office of Fiera Biological Consulting, located at #301, 10359 82nd Avenue, Edmonton Alberta (Above Block 1912 cafe).
  • Field Session: Saturday, December 2, 2017 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm (longer if there is interest). We will meet at the Tawayik Lake shelter in Elk Island National Park.

Details:

  • Friday will consist of a slide presentation that will cover some basic tracking skills, providing a foundation for getting the most out the field day. Bring a pen and a notebook. We will try to wrap things up by 7:30 so people can get on with their Friday night shenanigans.

Saturday will be a field day. We will practice what we learned in the classroom, and learn a few more tricks as well. Participants are expected to provide their own transportation to Elk Island National Park and should bring a lunch, and are expected to dress appropriately for standing around in the cold. A notebook, a camera, and a tape measure are all recommended for the field session.
