Follow Karen’s lead through skills and drills along the trail. Wildlife CSI – hone and share your observation skills. Gain interpretation skills of wildlife signs with support from Gudrun. Knowing where to look and how to see can enrich all your outdoor adventures!

Enjoy your lunch (BYOL) next to the crackling fire in Hirundo’s Parker Reed Cabin by the pond, while learning about equipment differences before heading out on the trail.
