Tracking is an ancient skill that is still relevant today. It teaches us to observe fine details as well as landscape-scale patterns, and is a gateway to connecting with nature and becoming more aware of the lives of other species around us. When we start solving a tracking mystery in a footprint or other clue left by a non-human creature, we soon find ourselves discovering more about birds, trees, plants, weather, insects and more . . .
