Learn animal tracking with NIC at Sandpoint class


It’s not too late to sign up for North Idaho College at Sandpoint’s “Animal Tracking” class taught by wilderness expert and author Brian Baxter on Feb. 6.

The one-day class is scheduled for 9 a.m. start Saturday, Feb. 6, at the NIC at Sandpoint parking lot. Pre-registration is required so register today: contact the NIC Workforce Training Center at (208) 769-3333 or request more information at workforcetraining@nic.edu or visit www.nic.edu/wtc.

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 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.

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