Map Grid Reference SX785839
Directions will be provided via email to you a few days prior to the event
AboutDo you know what the track in the photo is? If yes, do you know it's species, sex, weight? Learn to read the language of nature through interpreting track and sign. Share the stories and different meanings of footprints in mud, feathers on a log, antler rubbings on a willow tree, or scat left on a rock.
Delve deep with the question 'What happened here?. And touch on the 'Five Arts of tracking - who, what, when, where, and why'. And, learn to read the landscape through natural navigation.
