Track and Sign Certification: Methow Valley, WA

certification
June 28–29, 2014
Hosted by the Methow Conservancy
Winthrop Washington
All day both days
$185*, space limited,
Spend two full days in the field with professional wildlife tracker, naturalist and educator, David Moskowitz. David's approach is highly interactive, with "test" questions starting the moment we meet-up. This style is an excellent way to learn and investigate, with the goal being to attain a professional certificate in wildlife tracking through Cybertracker Conservation.

David and a co-instructor will actively engage participants in the process of identification and interpretation of tracks and signs encountered in the field. An interactive approach with time for questions and discussion will provide opportunities for participants to share their thoughts openly and ask detailed questions of the evaluators. We will strive to expose participants to the widest possible diversity of tracks and signs in the Methow, and the two-day class is entirely field based at various places around the valley.

Cybertracker’s Wildlife Tracking Certification has become the international standard for professional and amateur certification in the field of wildlife tracking. Certificates are awarded on three levels. The whole experience is a lot of fun to boot!

The class is limited to 11 people, and costs $185 per person. Participants may want to study lightly and/or read a tracking guidebook, such as Dave's "Wildlife of the Pacific Northwest." Lodging and food are on you own but we can give you suggestions if need be. To register or for more information, contact Mary at 509-996-2870 or mary@methowconservancy.org.
