About the event

Animal Tracking – Gaits

Are you intrigued by the possibility of reading stories in the way in which animals walk?  In this class you will learn the personalities of different animals like the "Quiet Walkers",  the "Tough Guys of the Woods", and the "Ready to Run" animals. Dress for the weather.  

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.
