In this two part field trip you will be introduced to winter animal track and sign and explore animal ecology. Learn strategies to identify animals through their tracks and sign, employing scientific inquiry through observation, hypothesis testing, data collection and analysis. Furthermore, we will begin the process of piecing together animal’s movements, behavior and ecology. This field trip will combine some classroom (1 hour) and field experiences (5 hours). There will be some discussion of strategies for classroom integration along with handouts. This field trip is designed for beginner to advanced trackers. You must be in moderate shape for this field trip. Bring a pack, snowshoes (I have extras), poles (optional), water, extra clothes, lunch, camera, tape measure, field notebook, and a pencil (pens freeze). Warning this field trip may be cancelled if there is no snow in the area. There will be a follow up workshop (“How to Collect, Map and Share your Field Data or Experiences” on March 18, 2017) on how to create student field and online journals. That same workshop will show you how to create and share interactive online maps (free), allowing you to plot data points, link data and photographs and to share the maps with other students, your community, schools or the world.
