Animal Tracking & Bird Language

Join us for a workshop on local animal tracking and bird language led by internationally certified tracker and 4th generation local native Jim Sullivan.   The introduction surveys traditional and contemporary tracking styles, awareness & grounding, track ID, gaits, scat and feed sign, getting inside the minds of animals, etc. Then we go into the field for a half day of "dirt time" and an opportunity to practice the ancient art of tracking.
