Prints left behind by wildlife can reveal far more than most people know. Was the animal running or walking? Was it hunting? Injured? What other animals was it interacting with? Instructor Chris Byrd will reveal the hidden world of animals by teaching basic tracking skills on Highway 20 near Rainy Pass. This unique ecotone of dry and wet meadows, as well as high elevation forest, supports moose, pika, hoary marmot and mountain goats.

In this daytime field course Chris will cover identification of genus and species so we know who's out there, gait interpretation so we understand what was happening, how to age the tracks so we have a sense of time, and behavior to add nuance to the story that emerges.

If you would like to reduce travel time to the course location, consider staying the night before at one of these first come first served campgrounds near Mazama: KlipchuckEarly Winters, or Lone Fir
