HOW IS PRICE DETERMINED?

Every custom course is priced specifically to that course. Many factors determine the price once I know: the duration of the program, the number of participants, course content and distance of travel.

A walk in the woods will yield many animal signs to the aware individual. The overall goal of this class is to locate a fresh trail, follow it, and find the animal who left those tracks. We will be seeing lots of animal tracks including: footprints, scat, feathers, bones, nests, chew marks, and dens.
Winter is the usual season students like to attend tracking classes as its generally easier to find tracks. This class is offered during any season and animal tracks show up every where. It is encouraged to learn tracking during all 4 seasons and on many different substrates. Be prepared to walk through varied terrain off-trail up to 2 miles or more if attending a 6 hour walk.
