Are you trying to figure out if those tracks you saw are bobcat, coyote or bear? Come to this class to learn the basics about animal tracking and sign identification. We will go out on the land to study gaits, how different animals move, and the patterns they leave for us to read. We will also practice sensory awareness exercises, different ways to see, and how to think like an animal. This is a beginning class, but people with experience are welcome; there will be something to learn for everyone.
