Learn to identify and follow wildlife using track and sign with George Leoniak, a widely-recognized Northern New England-based animal tracker. Leoniak will give a Level I Track and Sign certification course on Saturday, January 24, 2015, beginning at 8:30am at The Harris Center for Conservation Education.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn about reading track and sign throughout their time in the field. Participants may be complete beginners in track and sign or wish to become certified through CyberTracker Conservation. For those desiring certification, the evaluation process begins with the outset of the time in the field. Everyone will have the opportunity to learn about following and reading track and sign, however, receiving the Level I Certificate is based on passing the evaluation criteria.
CyberTracker Conservation is a globally recognized non-profit organization that has established an international standard for wildlife tracking skills. This course provides certification at Level I.
The workshop is limited to 15 people, and enrollment is on a first come/first served basis. The course may be cancelled with fewer than 12 people.
Participants should meet, rain or shine, at 8:30am at The Harris Center for Conservation Education where they will spend the entire day in the field. Bring your own bag lunch and drink, wear shoes and clothing appropriate for walking and spending the day
