Wrapping up the Wildlife Tracking Intensive for 2013

Black bears, mountain lions, and much much more…

May marked the end of this years Wildlife Tracking Intensive at Wilderness Awareness School. We spent one more weekend exploring wild lands in the region looking for tracks and signs of wildlife and testing our skills in the field.

Advanced Path Student Projects

Saturday afternoon our two Advanced Path students presented on their research projects.

From Field to Font Erin Campbells project for completing the advanced path of the Tracking Intensive involved writing and publishing a series of articles on wildlife tracking on Wilderness Awareness School’s content website, NatureSkills.com.



As Time Passes Chris Olson completed the Advanced Path with a project looking at the process of track aging in western Washington.

Thanks to all of our students this year for their passion for developing their skills as wildlife trackers and naturalists! It was another great year!
