Animal Track & Sign Day Workshop - An introduction to an invaluable skill
This one day workshop is designed to give those wishing to learn about tracking an insight into a world that often goes unnoticed. It also gives those with a keen interest in native wildlife, such as bird watchers or walkers, a platform to clearly identify and interpret signs of animal presence and activities.
Your day will consist of a classroom session to cover key subjects, and look at examples of various clues you will find in the wild from skeletal remains to feeding sign and scat. This will be followed by a guided walk to discuss and observe real sign, and test your new skills, before returning to the camp at the end of the day.
The day runs from 0930-1630, and as we will be out for a good part of the day you will need to bring a drink bottle and packed lunch and wear suitable outdoor clothing.
