Join tracker Kathy Dean (co-founder of Her Wild Roots) out on the snows to build your ecological literacy and find out what the animals are up to in the cold weather! Right now Bobcats are seeking prey, coyotes and foxes are marking in preparation for the February mating season. Whose tracks will we see? Who will we be able to trail over the snows? Come with us and find out!

In this beginner-friendly experiential workshop we will wander over the beautiful land of Franklin County covering basic tracking curriculum, engaging with the natural world around us, connecting with other women interested in wildlife tracking, and having fun!

This workshop is open to all female-identified people.
