About the Program
Animals are constantly leaving behind tracks and signs of their presence, but how many of us know how to identify and interpret these signs? In this program, students will learn how to open our senses and where to look for these signs, how to identify who made the sign and why. They will also learn the importance of camouflage for animals, how they do it and how we can do it both internally and with our outwardly appearance. Through various games and activities students will put their skills to the test of how to move through nature camouflaged, unobtrusively, and get a practical sense of the dynamic predator-prey relationship.
