October 3rd - 4th: Wildlife Track & Sign Certification Class, $200*. This class is FULL. Call to get on the wait list. Spend two full days in the field with professional wildlife tracker, naturalist and educator, David Moskowitz. David's approach is highly interactive, with "test" questions starting the moment we meet-up. This style is an excellent way to learn and investigate, with the goal being to attain a professional certificate in wildlife tracking through Cybertracker Conservation. Lots of time for questions and discussion enhance the class. We will strive to expose participants to the widest possible diversity of tracks and signs in the Methow, and the two-day class is entirely field based at various places around the valley. The class is limited to 11 people, and costs $200 per person. Participants may want to study lightly and/or read a tracking guidebook, such as Dave's "Wildlife of the Pacific Northwest." Lodging and food are on you own. Contact Mary at 509-996-2870 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to register.
