About the Event

The Wisconsin River is a tracker's paradise when conditions are right. The sandbars, floodplain woods, sloughs, and barrens harbor a wonderful array of birds, mammals, reptiles, fish, amphibians, invertebrates, and flora. This will be a day-long workshop focused  learning about this landscape, particularly through exploring and learning the track and sign left behind by this myriad wildlife on the receptive surfaces of this landscape. 

We will cover the foot shape and morphology of our local wildlife, the gaits used commonly by various animals, and the sign left by wildlife as they mark, travel, feed, scat, migrate, and play upon this river's edges. The timing should be great for migrating bird life, feeding and reproducing mammals, and the water being down leaving lots of surfaces. I will work to scout out lots of great learning opportunities, making this a solid day of education for those wanting to see more in the living landscape, those using tracking in their working lives, and those preparing for tracking certifications.

To register for this workshop please email Nicholas at wildroots.handcrafts@gmail.com for instructions on payment and more. The cost for this program will be $70 for the day but scholarships will be offered with adequate enrollment for the sake of its accessibility to all interested parties. Please inquire when you email for details!

Location(s) will be between Arena, WI and Lone Rock, WI on the Wisconsin River, a stretch with Spring Green at the center. This allows me to scout and find the best and most educational areas here when this time comes.
