We will start class with an overview of Wildlife Tracking to help you recognize tracks and other signs of animals, including track characteristics of mammal families present in our bioregion. Your instructors will arrange a “tracking scenario” consisting of track “cut-outs” to solidify your understanding of track identification, plus educated interpretation of what animals are doing based on their tracks. We will also choose some volunteers to demonstrate “animal forms” which are the way animals move, as this is critical to really understand how tracks get laid on the ground. Finally, we'll embark on a real-life tracking expedition into the depths of Clark's Creek, trailing what we find.
Join us for this or any of our special classes in Puyallup celebrating Independence Week. Adults and families with children are invited to join us. This class is being designed and taught by Wolf College apprentices under direct supervision of founder Chris Chisholm. Expect a class that provides you with generous information, hands-on experiential learning, and heart-felt inspiration. Pre-payment is not required to RSVP but we will ask you to fill out a post-class evaluation, and make a $15-$25 contribution afterwards based on your financial situation and your level of satisfaction with instructors in training.
