Join Jim Lowery, primitive skills teacher and author of The Tracker’s Field Guide, to learn and refine fundamental tracking skills. This two-day class will explore the natural world through animal tracking, sign identification, and awareness techniques. Lowery will explain how to translate patterns found in the desert sand into animal stories in Joshua Tree National Park. This class will be entirely field-based in order to provide abundant “dirt time” focusing on following trails, interpreting tracks and signs and even learning to read mood and body language of desert animals through their trails. Wildlife behavior, biology, and ecological relationships will also be examined. In this weekend class, participants will feel the thrill of becoming environmental detectives by investigating the signs animals leave behind. Camping with the instructor, at the beautiful Lost Horse Campground is an option for this class.
