Tracking Club

 

NEW for 2018-19: Two Tracking Club Locations! Duvall and Seattle. See below for details.

The mission of Tracking Club is to develop skilled trackers of all ages, prepare adults to pass on tracking knowledge to youth, and prepare youth for a lifetime of learning about the natural world.

Join us for fun-filled mornings of community learning as we peer into the lives of wild animals through the tracks they leave behind. You can never be sure what cast of characters will have been playing: elk, otter, coyote, bobcat, bear, cougar...

At Tracking Club, participants are led by skillful naturalists into a world of mystery and intrigue that we call tracking. Learn animal track identification, aging, interpretation and much more.

The experience is designed to inspire curiosity and give you the tools needed to track with confidence on your own, and to share the joys of tracking with others.
