Wildlife Tracking Basics with Josh Wood

 Registration is closed for this event
Tracking Basics with Josh Wood at Albert Family Community Forest, Nassau. We will focus on learning key characteristics in track identification, and begin to unravel various track patterns and how they correspond to the way the animal was moving, providing us with insight into its behavior and a window into its life. We will also look at other types of animal sign, gaining an increased awareness of the wildlife that surrounds us.


Join local tracking experts Dan Yacobellis and Josh Wood for a series of three workshops to learn animal tracks or to enhance your skills. All are welcome to attend one or more workshops; each workshop will add a new layer to the tracking experience. The second two workshops will also include GPS mapping and documenting of all observed wildlife sign, using citizen science to contribute to an online, active map of animal activity on the Rensselaer Plateau. These workshops are jointly sponsored by the Rensselaer Land Trust, Rensselaer Plateau Alliance, and Dyken Pond Environmental Education Center.
