Wildlife Tracking Basics

Saturday, September 18th; 9am-5pm

Please arrive by 8:45am and be prepared to start at 9am.

Where: A good portion of the course will be at our campus, Linne Doran, which is located about fifteen minutes outside of Duvall in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. You can find a map and driving directions here. We will also be visiting great tracking spots in the nearby area. The instructors will guide you on where to meet as needed.

What to Expect:

We will be spending time outside in the woods as well as some covered structures. Be
prepared to dress in layers so that you can adjust easily. Expect that you may get
muddy and dirty!

  • We’ll cover many essential topics including:
  • Wildlife and their Biology
  • How to learn the Art of Tracking
  • Animal Track and Sign identification
  • Track Measurements and Journaling
  • Animal Gait/Movement patterns

As this program is about unplugging, we will ask people to turn off their devices during class time.

Facilities: Personal facilities for your use include several port-a-potties, along with drinkable water. 

Food: No meals are provided with this program. Please bring a sack lunch and snacks. We do not have any way for you to refrigerate or heat your food, so please plan accordingly.
