Algonquin Park Wildlife Research Center Mammal Tracking Workshop


Here is an opportunity to take part in a special program this winter on Wildlife tracking at the Algonquin Park Wildlife Research Center that is not open to the public.
Join us January 30th-31st, 2016 at Algonquin Wildlife Research Station (Est. 1944) as we immerse ourselves in the winter life-history strategies of Algonquin’s wildlife. New for 2016 the Wildlife Signs, Tracks and Interpretation Workshop has been developed to broaden your understanding of wildlife ecology, biology and behaviour while ensuring that both wildlife and the landscape are minimally impacted.
This is a unique workshop that brings together the expertise of renowned naturalists and outdoor educators: Robin Tapley of Tapley Nature Trails/founder and coordinator of Fanshawe College’s Adventure Expedition and Interpretive Leadership Program, Bob Bowles of Bowles Environmental Consultants and Nature Tours, founder and coordinator of the Ontario Master Naturalist Program, a partnership with Lakehead University, Orillia and Ontario Nature, and Tim Winegard Manager of the Algonquin Wildlife Research Station.
Field-based discussion of animal tracks, signs and behaviours in combination with knowledge of tree ID will be used to strengthen your interpretation of how wildlife use and rely on their environment. Participants will be introduced to the AWRS and Tapley Nature Trails ethical engagement practices which focus on knowledge of animal behaviour to ensure wildlife is minimally impacted during your outdoor endeavors. Please contact Bob Bowles rbowles@rogers.com for more information and to book your workshop today.
Program Pricing: $269+HST/person. Includes: 1 night accommodation at the AWRS, 5 meals and snacks, snowshoe rental, wildlife track and ID worksheet access to interpretive supplies and field guides.
