Vermont Champlain Valley wildlife tracking course seeks new participants.
Since 2008, The Willowell Foundation in Monkton, VT has sought to engage community members, educators and students in wildlife monitoring through the renowned Keeping Track Wildlife Monitoring Program with Sue Morse.
The Keeping Track Wildlife Monitoring Program will once again be offered beginning January of 2014. Participants in the program will learn behavioral ecology, track identification and track patterns, ecosystem connectivity, wildlife habitat and food resources, land use and connectivity and how it affects and relates to human residents of Vermont, as well as gain a deeper understanding of the story of the forest.
No prior experience is necessary and conservation planners, committee members, hunters, educators, naturalists and anyone with an interest in the outdoors and the future of our wild places are all encouraged to enroll. Trainings conducted by Sue Morse are held during five full-day field programs throughout the winter and spring. The course begins January 11th and registration is required.
The cost of enrollment for the full course is $350 for adults or $250 for students through generous underwriting from the National Life Group Charitable Foundation. Participants may also register for single field program dates at a cost of $75/adult and $40/student. We strongly encourage those who are able to sign up for the entire 5-class course to gain a more complete understanding of the behavior of a greater variety of species, tracking in a greater variety of habitats and ecosystems, as well as the opportunity to learn in a variety of seasons and conditions.
“Susan Morse is a great instructor,” says Elizabeth Lee, NYS Outdoor Guide and coordinator of the training for the Northeast Wilderness Trust. “She is humorous as a teacher while being absolutely focused as a field naturalist. She challenges conservationists, sportsmen and community planners to expand their thinking about animal presence and behavior.”
