Snow Tracking Workshop – Grande Prairie / Peace Region, Alberta

Registration Closed

This snow tracking workshop is a two-day, field-based practical workshop on identifying tracks in snow. The workshop is meant to develop skills in beginners, and advance the skills of experienced trackers. Ideal for ecology students, wildlife researchers, environmental consultants, guides and keen naturalists and outdoors persons 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.
