We will learn about the behavior of the local mammals in the area by learning about the tracks and signs they leave to understand how they interact with their environment. We’ll learn to interpret the track patterns and gaits they leave, so we can learn to visualize how these animals move through various terrains. We’ll also learn about the morphology (structure) of different species’ feet, and how that structure dictates the footprints animals leave behind.
The wild animals will become our teachers for the day and as a group we will encounter many mysteries to explore. We’ll have opportunities to share individual insights about what we encounter and learn about our own process of connecting to the world around us. Participants will leave with a clear process for approaching track identification and interpretation. All the fundamental tools of learning the art of animal tracking will be packed in to this one day and with them you’ll have the resources to learn more.
