Tracking Series 1: The Fundamentals of Animal Tracking

Piedmont Wildlife Center
Instructor: Kurt Barnhart

This class is a prerequisite to the Tracking Series, a 5 part class series that explores the language of animal tracking. This comprehensive class series offers the tools and abilities to read stories etched across every landscape, unravel mysteries, the ability to see more in the world around us. It extends from tracking basics to advanced techniques.

In the Fundamentals of Tracking class, we focus on identification, interpretation and awareness. Read into the secrets of animals lives by recognizing individual tracks as well as interpreting tracking gaits and patterns. We will practice techniques for sharpening visual abilities, read and interpret the tracks of our landscape and we will share the fundamentals of tracking as a complete art and science.

    5 star all the way. Kurt has a great way of explaining things. He really knows what it means to be a part of your surroundings. The class was filled with a great group of people and we all worked well together. I can't wait for the rest of the tracking series! We learned a lot in our six hour class!

    Can anyone tell me if this class will be rain or shine. Looks like were going to have a few storms on Sunday. I don't mind getting wet, but I live about 1.5 hours from Durham and don't want to waist the gas if its going to be canceled. Also, if it is canceled will the class be rescheduled or refunded?
