Predator & Prey

Program Description
Our new Predator and Prey class is a fun and exciting way to approach tracking.  Students will get practical experience tracking and nature observation through the eyes of both Predator, and Prey.  Through a series of games and scenarios, students explore the major and minute tracks that all animals leave behind.  We will cover track ID, sign tracking, counter tracking and the ultimate way of reading tracks, through pressure releases.  Pressure releases were understood and developed by the Apache, and are a way to read tracks like pages in a book.  After taking this class, students will never look at the ground the same way!

Ages and Prerequisites:
Ages 8-17 and families (optional)
This program is designed for families to attend together and is also open for youth and teens age 10-17 to attend alone.

During the program, kids are divided into age appropriate groups and the parents, while participating sometimes with their children, also have their own group to learn the skills.
