About the Event
Cybertracker is the international standard in certifying animal trackers and tracking specialists. An evaluator from the organization, Matt Nelson, will conduct this two day event. Participants will be asked questions on a wide range of track and sign, from scat, feather, and feeding sign to tracks, scratches and burrows, and also questions on details of tracks and conditions under which they were made. Participants will receive certification based on their answers and the levels of Cybertracker's certification system. However, the discussions and feedback serve to create a highly educational experience, and is worth the experience just as an educational training in tracking and sign reading.
Wildroots will be hosting this event (though where exactly it will be conducted in our area is TBD) and running registrations.

About Evaluator Matt Nelson:
From the Arctic to the Antarctic, this simple traveler has left footprints in search of authenticity in his life. Slow to learn and insistent on the hardest of life’s lessons, he’s a generalist in the true sense of the word. Easily bored, Matt has worked more jobs than can be listed here, searching for himself amid all the glittery promises of the materialistic culture he grew up in.
A lifetime hunter and woodsman, Matt strives to share his deep observations and his love for all things wild and true freely amongst his human interactions and in his teaching.
Matt holds a Senior Tracker certificate from Cybertracker Conservation, is a track and sign evaluator with the same organization, and has worked on numerous wildlife and research projects, including the Gualala River Watershed council, the Garfield/Mesa Lion project, and the East Bay Puma Project. He currently resides in northern Wisconsin.
