Snow Tracking Field Essentials – December 2023

December 2, 2023 | Must be aged 18+

Snow Tracking Field Essentials is a one-day, field-based practical workshop on identifying tracks in snow. Suitable as a crash course for beginners, this course is frequently a “breakthrough” experience even for experienced trackers. Ideal for ecology students, wildlife researchers, and environmental consultants with any level of tracking knowledge or experience.

Learn to recognize key characteristics in track patterns, and apply your knowledge of the character and physical attributes of each species as a crucial first step to identifying the track-maker. Participants will reduce their dependance on footprint features to confidently match track makers to species.

Participants will spend the day learning from a certified wildlife tracker with more than 20 years of professional tracking experience.

Participants are responsible for their own transportation, food, and drink.
