  • The Next Step: Interpreting Animal Tracks, Trails and Sign
     High summer is upon us. signalled by
the bloom of daisies and black-eyed
susans. The emergence of this year's
young from their birthing dens greatly
increases the number of mammals abroad
in the woods and wetlands. All these
animals leave evidence of their presence
and passing, but it is often lost against a
confusing background.
     This is the subtle season for trackers,
where concentration is demanded to
distinguish animal sign from that
background. Even the tracks of a bear,such
as those in the photo, can be hard to
discern. Finding sign in the summer is a
matter of knowing what to expect in a given
habitat as well as developing a mental
catalogue of search images appropriate to
it. Join us as we practice these skills.
