About the event

Animal Tracking–Clear Print Identification

Are you intrigued by the possibility of reading stories in the tracks that animals leave upon the face of the earth?  In this class you will learn the basics for identifying the footprints of most North American mammals.  Casts of animal tracks taken in the wild will be on display.  Dress for the weather.  If conditions are right, we may go out and view tracks.  

Led by skilled wilderness tracker and instructor, Ron Nosek.  Intrigued by animals and the signs that they leave upon the earth—from clear prints to scat to skulls—Ron has a penchant for teaching others about those critters.  Ron is a former attorney (retired after 29 years of criminal trial work) who for many years did two wilderness trips a year just to keep his head in the right place.  He has recently recounted a number of his outdoor experiences in a collection of essays published as Natural Selections.

Ideal for scout troops, school and church groups, families, and anyone with a love for nature.
