Winter Tracking: Baker Lake Snowshoe Excursion

February 22, 2015 8am–5pm
hosted by North Cascades Institute
Squat Valley/Baker Lake, Washington
meeting location: Sedro Wooley Washington.
Animals are masters of camouflage but snow clues us in to who is around and what they are up to. Travel to the foothills of the Cascades to explore a winter world teeming with wildlife big and small.

Join Dave Moskowitz, author of the award-winning Wolves in the Land of Salmon and a longtime wildlife tracker and teacher at the Wilderness Awareness School, as we explore this wondrous winterscape while learning 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. Location and activities are weather-dependent as snow-levels vary each year. Snowshoe travel is weather dependent. Bring your own snowshoes, but don’t worry if you don’t have any as we will have extra snowshoes. No previous experience is necessary but participants should be prepared for unpredictable winter conditions.
