Many people think of “tracking” as something best done when snow is on the ground, but the sands of Laudholm Beach reveal the stories of a diverse array of birds, mammals and invertebrates. On Saturday morning, July 16th, from 7:30 – 10:30 a.m., YCA and the Wells Reserve are pleased to host a seaside workshop that will help to reveal such signs and tales. Join Certified Wildlife Tracker and Maine Guide Dan Gardoqui for an enlightening morning of decoding stories in the sand. Participants will need to walk about 3 miles and spend time on uneven surfaces. Please bring your own water and snacks.
Dan Gardoqui has been studying naturalist skills, wildlife tracking, bird language, and mentoring for nearly 30 years. Dan has a M.S. in Natural Resources, is a Certified Wildlife Tracker, Registered Maine Guide, and served as Science Faculty at Granite State College. Through wildlife tracking, Dan has contributed to wildlife studies and served as science editor for the bird language book What the Robin Knows. Dan co-founded and led the nature connection nonprofit, White Pine Programs for 20 years. He currently runs Lead with Nature, where he helps leaders find success and meaning through nature-based consulting services & adventures.
The cost for the workshop is $25 for members (of YCA or the Wells Reserve), or $30 for non-members. Space is limited. To reserve a spot, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (207) 646-1555 x116.
