Event description

Description

Join Jim Lowery to learn and refine fundamental tracking skills. This class will explore the natural world through animal tracking, sign identification, and awareness techniques. Lowery will explain how to translate patterns found in the desert sand into animal stories. This class will be entirely field-based in order to provide abundant “dirt time” focusing on following trails, interpreting tracks and signs and even learning to read mood and body language of desert animals through their trails. Wildlife behavior, biology, and ecological relationships will also be examined by investigating the signs animals leave behind.

Camping option available on Saturday evening for participants at the Lost Horse Campground, a beautiful location that is perfect for this program!
