Wildlife tracking class offered on Saturday

The San Diego Tracking Team (SDTT) will hold a Beginning Tracking for Wildlife Surveys class at the Adobe Ranch House in Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve on Saturday, Oct. 26, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The preserve is at 12122 Canyonside Park Driveway, San Diego.

Those who take the class will learn how to participate in surveys that monitor the wildlife in open space preserves and other critical areas. Topics include basic recognition and identification of animal tracks and other signs, introduction to track patterns and gaits, wildlife journaling, an overview of survey protocol and more. Classroom time is supplemented with time in the field.

The training, required for survey volunteers, also serves as a prerequisite for SDTT’s Intermediate Tracker/Naturalist class. A $25 fee includes reference materials. Pre-registration is requested by contacting info@sdtt.org.

Participants should dress prepared to spend time outdoors and bring a sack lunch. For more information, visit www.sdtt.org.
