6:00 p.m. Talk  – Wildlife Survey Volunteer Training: An Introduction to    Tracking I   2 Hours
If you’ve always wanted to learn more about identifying wildlife sign in San Diego County, then this is your chance! This FREE class prepares you to participate in San Diego Tracking Team (SDTT)  surveys that monitor the wildlife in major space preserves and other critical areas. Our emphasis in this training will be the animals of our desert area. You will learn about basic track and scat identification, animal gaits, habitat fragmentation, survey transects, data collection protocols and conservation. At the end of the class, you will be able to sign up to join experienced trackers on some of SDTT’s wildlife surveys throughout the San Diego area. Saturday morning we will go into the field (see Saturday, January 27).  Get more information and sign up at the Visitor Center.
