(See the Products page for more information)
The high summer sun evaporates water from
the surface of beaver ponds, exposing their
muddy margins, This provides a good matrix
for recording the tracks of animals that prowl
these edges or come out of the forest to
drink. Bears are large, dark animals that
absorb and store a lot of solar energy in their
mass. Thus their tracks are often found at the
edge of these ponds as they cool themselves
and replenish their fluids..     
The subtle season for trackers has arrived,
challenging us to find, identify and interpret
sign often hiding in plain sight. Join the
adventure this spring and summer.
