Workshop, Washington Cascades: Baker Lake Snow Tracking

class
February 22, 2014 9am–4pm
North Cascades Institute
Skagit Valley, Baker Lake, Washington State
Travel to the foothills of the Cascades and enter a winter wonderland in search of the animals who call this place home. Animals are masters of camouflage, but snow gives us the ability to see who is around and clues us in on what they are up too.

Join Dave Moskowitz, a longtime wildlife tracker and teacher at the Wilderness Awareness School, to explore the landscapes around Baker Lake while learning winter mountain ecology, plant and animal survival strategies, wildlife tracking and the natural history of snow. Moskowitz is the author of Wolves in the Land of Salmon, an excellent book named one of the Best Science Books of 2013 by the Library Review and shortlisted by the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association.

This field excursion will feature low-impact travel on uneven surfaces. Location and activities are weather-dependent. Bring your own snowshoes, but don’t worry if you don’t have any, we will bring extra snowshoes. Participants should be prepared for unpredictable winter conditions, but no previous experience is necessary.
