Winter animals are masters of camouflage, but snow reveals the secrets of their movements. 

Travel to the foothills of the Cascades to explore a winter world teeming with wildlife big and small. Join Marcus Reynerson — a longtime wildlife tracker and teacher at the Wilderness Awareness School — as we explore this wondrous winterscape. We’ll learn about wildlife tracking, mountain ecology, plant and animal survival strategies and the natural history of snow.

This field excursion will feature low-impact travel on uneven surfaces and participants should be prepared for unpredictable winter conditions. Location and activities are weather-dependent as snow-levels vary each year. If snowshoes will be necessary we will let you know ahead of time and will have some available to borrow.


Participants can choose between two options for Winter Tracking with Marcus Reynerson: this one has participants arriving Friday afternoon and includes six meals (dinner Friday - lunch Sunday), two nights of lodging (Friday & Saturday) and two days of instruction. A less-expensive Option B has participants arriving at the Environmental Learning Center Saturday morning and includes three meals (dinner Saturday - lunch Sunday), one night of lodging (Saturday) and two days of instruction. Click here for information on Option B.
