Learn tracking, ecology

Print Article

SANDPOINT — North Idaho College at Sandpoint is offering an “Animal Tracking and Sign Interpretation” class, which was rescheduled due to weather from earlier this month.

“Animal Tracking and Sign Interpretation” taught by wilderness expert and author Brian Baxter will be held Saturday, Feb. 3, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Class will meet in the south parking lot of the NIC at Sandpoint Center at 102 S. Euclid Street in Sandpoint.

Learn to decipher the subtle clues that wildlife leave behind in the form of trails, prints, rubs, hair, smells and behaviors as they silently creep through the woods, fields, and wetlands. In this one-day, field-oriented class, students will learn from an experienced wildlife researcher on how to key into habitat to search, discover and interpret sign such as the dance of a red fox across a field in snow, the tail drag of a muskrat in mud, the scat of a mink in sand, and the track of a blue heron along the shorelines. With degrees in both forestry and wildlife biology, instructor Brian Baxter has more than 40 years in the field and delivers an informative and fun lesson that requires a 2-mile long moderate hike. The fee is $49.

In addition, Baxter will also teach a Winter Ecology class Saturday, Feb. 10, beginning at 9 a.m. The class will begin at the south parking lot of the NIC at Sandpoint Center at 102 S. Euclid Street in Sandpoint. Learn how to identify trees, animals, and bird during a winter hike.

To register for either class, contact the NIC Workforce Training Center at (208) 769-3333 or request more information at workforcetraining@nic.edu or visit www.nic.edu/wtc.
