Animal Tracking & Nature Awareness
Adult Courses & Classes

The art of animal tracking and nature awareness helps us see more wildlife in the woods and connect to nature. The lives of animals are revealed by the tracks they leave behind. Get hands-on experience interpreting wildlife sign, following animals across any ground, and even finding hidden creatures by listening to bird calls and alarms.

Join the Trackers Village! Reconnect with nature while learning outdoor skills to share with your family, students, and friends. This is more than a class, together we create a mentoring village of outdoor enthusiasts, parents, educators, and seniors.

Animal Tracking

With expert Trackers Guides and a fellowship of like-minded colleauges, the Animal Tracking Immersion teaches these core elements:
