Program Overview

Vermont Wilderness School is happy to host this Evaluation, a two-day interactive tracking experience that offers the chance to immerse deeply into the world of tracking and provide direct feedback on your tracking knowledge.

This weekend experience is an incredible stand alone tracking workshop for people of all experience levels. It offers learning, community with other people who love the world of tracks & trails, and the possibility of certification.

The international Tracker Certification webpage says:

The Track and Sign Certification is a two-day practical field test that emphasizes open, honest dialogue and real learning. The tracks and sign of any and all species encountered in the field may be asked, whether big or small, clear or obscure. After participants give their answers, a dialogue ensues between the evaluator and participants to provide the opportunity for everyone involved to learn and for each of us to internalize the field marks used for identification. The Tracker Certifications emphasize practical tracking and the development of reliable field skills, and are unassociated with any particular philosophy or tracking school. No prior training is required to participate.

Past Track & Sign Eval evaluators have included:

Tracker Certification North America (CyberTracker) TCNA is the body the Evaluators are certified by and operate with. Learn more at https://trackercertification.com/.
