ANIMAL TRACKING AND SIGN INTERPRETATION DAY,
January 12 @ 9:00 AM - 2:30 PMFREE
Join experienced tracker and wildlife researcher Brian Baxter on Saturday, January 12th, 2019 from 9am-2:30 pm. Winter is a great time to improve the outdoor skills of identifying wild animals and their behavior by understanding the oldest writing known on the earth – animal tracking! The group will search for clues and evidence in the nooks and crannies of one of the Flathead Valley’s most beautiful and rich riparian areas. Baxter has over 40 years working professionally in wildlife, forestry, and outdoor education. This outdoor education class is sponsored by Silver Cloud Associates, Flathead Audubon, and Montana Audubon. Please come prepared for the day with proper layers of winter clothing, good winter boots, snowshoes if you have them, water, lunch, binoculars and cameras. The hiking is moderate, with relatively flat terrain, a few steep cut banks, and about two and a half miles round trip. Ski poles or hiking poles are handy to negotiate the riverbanks. To sign up for this free class contact Brian at email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at: 406-291-2154. Space is limited so please register to find out more info on location to meet, and please plan to attend if you sign up. Brian’s teaching style is hands on, informative and scientific, but he does add a sense of humor and enjoyment that should contribute to making it a fun and memorable day!
