*The Art and Science of Wildlife Tracking *
*October 13 & 14, 2017*

Become a nature detective! Wildlife trackers piece together clues left
behind in the environment to gain a richer picture of the variety of
animals using a habitat and read the story of their behavior. We’ll
evaluate tracks and signs to determine who’s been there and what they’ve
been doing.

This course will include an evening in-class session, paired with a morning
field day practicing our skills out on the trail at Border Field State
Park. At the workshop, you’ll become familiar with common local wildlife
species, learn basic track and sign identification, avoid the pitfalls of
perception, learn how to distinguish between mountain lion and domestic dog
tracks (which are confused more often than not), and more.

This class will be taught by SDAS Education Associate/Volunteer Manager,
Jill Cooper. Jill is a trained biologist who has been tracking wildlife for
more than ten years.
