Want to expand your tracking horizons beyond Minnesota's sand roads, river bottoms, and forests? Join members of the Minnesota Wildlife Tracking Project for an expedition to Central Texas for a Standard Track & Sign Evaluation in Texas Hill Country.

This evaluation will take place April 4-5, 2024, in and around the Earth Native Wilderness School in Bastrop, Texas. Dave Scott will be evaluating. 

Tuition for the evaluation is $350*. Partial scholarships may be available through Tracker Certification North America

Kirsten Welge is also organizing a group to view the eclipse, and there are a few spaces left. If you'd like to participate in the eclipse viewing as well as the evaluation, please mention this in your registration message. She'll be in touch with details.
