Program Summary

Ever wondered who left tracks in your yard after the first snowfall of the year? Like to get to know more about the wildlife neighbors in your area?  The Tracking Club is a monthly gathering of adults and interested teens who are curious about nature and have a desire to connect and learn with others about wildlife.  Each month we’ll visit a different, rich ecosystem to connect with the wildlife by interpreting their tracks, trails and signs. All are welcome – beginners to more experienced trackers, naturalists and people who enjoy being in nature.

Program Objectives

  • Get to know unique and varied ecosystems and the wildlife they support 
  • Develop skills and confidence using resources to help with identification
  • Practice techniques of observation and questioning to increase your tracking skills
  • Connect with others who share your interest in being more aware in nature

Program Details

We will meet from 9:00am-12:00pm. Locations and topics will vary – see below for more information.  Pr-registration is required.  With consideration of COVID-19, we are limiting enrollment each month to 14 participants.  Program costs are based on a sliding fee scale.
