Redwood Region Audubon Society holds
its monthly Conservation Meeting at Rita’s Margaritas
and Mexican Grill, 1111 5th Street, Eureka. (707) 445-8311.
Join us for a presentation entitled “Wildlife Tracking: the Past, Present, and Future of an Ancient Art.” Professional wildlife tracker Phil Johnston will cover
the basics of tracking, from its roots in early human evolution on the African
savanna to its modern applications for science and education. The talk will
separate fact from fiction, dispelling common myths and highlighting a
practical approach to wildlife tracking and nature connection. Phil will also
share personal anecdotes from his experience tracking in northern California
and elsewhere in the world. The talk will be followed up on Saturday Feb 11th by a field trip to a local
area to get hands-on experience identifying and interpreting wildlife tracks and
sign in the field. The program will be at
Six Rivers Masonic Lodge, 251 Bayside Road, Arcata. Bring a mug to enjoy shade-grown coffee, and
