Introduction to Nature Observation
Judd Creek Land Trust Property
Vashon, WA
Share this event:

In this Vashon Nature Center Naturalist workshop join certified tracker Mallory Clarke and learn how to find wildlife by track and sign. We will cover a variety of wildlife observation  techniques including how to: use soot track traps, cast tracks, place wildlife cameras, identify general track characteristics, use field guides to ID tracks, scat, and animal sign. In addition, participants will learn what to look for and measure so that your observations are scientifically credible.

We will cover different ways of recording your observations as well. From personal journals to global databases like inaturalist there are many ways to get into the rhythm of observing nature more closely while at the same time contributing important information about natural history that scientists and land managers can use.

Participants will go home with their own track cast, their own soot track trap, and a burgeoning excitement to get out there and explore!
