Track and Sign Certification: Mount Hood, OR

Cybertracker classes provide an opportunity for quality, focused learning from some of the best trackers in the country. They are designed to further participant's tracking knowledge, as well as to rigorously test and document their current tracking skill set. Originally designed to help African Bushmen gain employment on game preserves, they also provide an internationally recognized certification of tracking ability, an important credential for wildlife researchers and environmental educators as well as for people who want test and push their own ability. Evaluations are entirely field based, striving to expose participants to the widest range of tracks and signs as possible. Discussions are encouraged, giving participants a chance to air their thoughts and receive individualized instruction.

This class will be located at several different field locations on the Mt Hood National Forest, within an hour and a half drive of Portland. It will be held during winter in the mountains, and participants are expected to transport themselves to class locations. In the event of inclement weather, the instructor may move the course to lower elevations. No refunds will be given for inclement weather unless the course is canceled by the instructor.

Instructor David Moskowitz is author of the best tracking field guide in our area, Wildlife of the Pacific Northwest: Tracking and Identifying Mammals, Birds, Reptiles, Amphibians, and Invertebrates. Based out of Washington, he teaches tracking internationally. Read more about the instructor.
