ENWS Wildlife Tracking Intensive Course 2023-24 – TX
October 7 - October 8$2,495
Most wild animals are secretive, nocturnal, or simply difficult to observe in the wild. Wildlife tracking skills can provide us an incredible window in the secret lives of Texas’ animal species. A skilled observer can not only determine what animals are inhabiting an area through the tracks that they are leaving behind but can also establish track and sign pattern interpretations that give us a much greater understanding of animal behavior.
This 8 month intensive course, meeting one weekend a month from October-May, will provide you with an incredible amount of experience in the field identifying the tracks and sign of Central Texas animal species.
