Animal tracking for families at Lake Merritt

  • Edoff Memorial Bandstand at Lake Merritt 664 Bellevue Ave Oakland, CA, 94610 United States (map)

Do you want to get closer to the lives of animals and become a nature detective? Do you want to read the secret stories written all around you? Learning how to track is like learning how to read, it opens up whole worlds of new learning. If you want to begin your learning adventure then come to this tracking workshop for the whole family. We will learn the basic letters and words of tracking and make tracks with our own feet and hands. We will also explore the tracks and signs left by local animals. Children and adults will leave this workshop with a new perspective on observation, patterns, and critical thinking applicable in nature and the human environment.

Marley Peifer is a certified tracker living in Sonoma county where he practices gardening, holistic tracking, and nature journaling. His current project is a series of children's books on animal tracking and nature awareness.
