ADV - Interpreting Tracks and Animal Sign

Interpreting Tracks and Animal Sign website

8793 Owl Avenue
Toivola, MN 55765

Tracks and animal sign can be among the most commonly viewed aspects of some species lives. Not often do we see wolves or bobcats, but along the right trail at the right time, you can easily find their sign. Often, when traversing the Sax-Zim Bog, tracks are encountered. But how do you know if you are looking at dog vs wolf tracks? What does a marten track look like? What is the difference between a hole made by a Downy Woodpecker and a Black-backed Woodpecker or a Pileated Woodpecker? This training will cover some of the basics of animal tracking and sign in the Sax-Zim Bog.

Plan on bringing a lunch and any snacks you might need during the day, as well as any materials you might need (cameras, notebooks, etc). There will be some light hiking done in wintery conditions and we will be in the field for the duration of the training.

There is no fee for this event.
