Some places still available in Gratiot Lake Conservancy summer workshops
Brian Rajdl, instructor and nature educator, will help participants learn to track animals and to interpret the signs they leave behind. Tracks, scats, feathers, fur, rubs, chews, lays, dens, and burrows are all signs to help identify WHO has been there, WHAT they were doing, WHEN they were there, WHERE their trail leads. Also, you can interpret WHY they left that particular sign, and HOW it might feel to be that animal.
The fee for this workshop is $20 ($15 GLC members); children under 16 (accompanied by an adult) are $5. Janet Avery Scholarships are available. Advance registration is required.
