Wildlife Tracking Workshop with Susan Morse

February 15, 2020

**Sold Out—Contact us to be put on the waitlist.**

Join expert wildlife tracker Susan Morse, featured in Audubon magazine and many other publications and media, for a walk in the wild on Audubon sanctuary land. During this 4-hour field workshop, Susan will show you how our woods and wetlands are used by our wild neighbors, whether or not we have snow for tracking. Depending on the location chosen, we will either carpool a short distance to a field site or simply walk into the woods on a Sharon Audubon Center trail. The walking distance, terrain, and pace will all be moderate—with an emphasis on detecting and understanding wildlife signs and discussing wildlife habits and behavior.

Dress to be comfortable for a leisurely 3-4 hour walk in the weather conditions of the day. If snow cover is deep, feel free to bring snowshoes (Sharon Audubon does not provide them). Snacks, beverages, and extra winter clothing are recommended. Minors should bring a parent or guardian. Register early, this workshop fills up!

  • Appropriate for ages 12 and up

About the Presenter: Susan Morse, the founder and science director of Keeping Track, is a highly regarded expert in natural history and one of North America’s top wildlife trackers. Since 1977, she has been monitoring wildlife, with an emphasis on documenting the presence and habitat requirements of bobcat, black bear, Canada lynx, and cougar.

When not in the field conducting research, leading training programs or photographing wildlife, Sue can often be found presenting her findings and award-winning images to a wide range of audiences, including the general public, conservation leaders, and students of all ages. Over the years, the University of Vermont graduate has served as a mentor to numerous young people and inspired many to pursue careers in natural resources.

Sue and Keeping Track have been featured on National Public Radio’s “Morning Edition” and in Adirondack Life, Amicus Journal, Animals, Audubon, The Forest Magazine, Nature Conservancy, Orion Afield, Ranger Rick, Science and Children, Smithsonian, Sonorensis, Vermont Magazine, Vermont Life, Vermont Maturity, Vero Beach, and Wild Earth.

Sue lives in Jericho, Vermont, at the edge of a rich and diverse forest she has helped conserve.
