SNOW TRACKING RARE SPECIES WITH JIM HALFPENNY
8 a.m. - 8 p.m. Saturday; 8a.m. - 4p.m. Sunday

Learn quality tracking skills in order to understand wildlife tracking and learn about large carnivores. This two-day workshop will cover track and sign identification, understanding footprints and interpreting gait with an emphasis on reading trails to understand animal behavior and ecology. This program is available for college credit and partially satisfies the requirements for being certified as a Volunteer Carnivore Tracker. If you are already a Certified Volunteer Carnivore Tracker, you may wish to register for a Sunday-only "brush up" session to refresh your tracking skills.

Dr. James Halfpenny, Ph.D., is president of A Naturalist's World, an educational adventure company, and former research associate at the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research at the University of Colorado. He has served as director of the Mountain Research Station and has taught tracking since 1967. He is the author of A Field Guide to Mammal Tracking in North America and Winter: An Ecological Handbook. Halfpenny specializes in finding signs of cougars, lynx, bears, wolverine and other carnivores.
