Relational Rewilding: The Art of Animal Tracking


Relational Rewilding hikes teach how to move with more grace, confidence, knowledge, and reverence in nature. On this hike we will focus on learning the Art of Tracking. Except for a chattering squirrel or fleeing mule deer, you may rarely see mammals in the wild. That’s because many are only active at night and quickly take cover when people come near. But you can often find evidence that animals have been around by looking at tracks and sign they leave behind. By exploring the who, what, when, where, and why of tracking, you become more attuned to which animals passed by, what they did, where they went, and much more. Seemingly barren ground becomes alive with a diversity of fascinating information.

Everyone is a tracker. And everyone leaves a track. Come awaken your senses and intuition, while building strong connections to your animal neighbors, local ecology, and yourself.
