Wanda DeWaard (top photo, right) taught a group of Smoky Mountain Field School participants the basics of animal tracking today.

Tracking is an ancient skill, but it can open up a whole new way of enjoying animals in their natural habitat in the Smokies.

The students analyzed snake skins, bird feathers, and even bear scat (poop) in the day-long course.

The 2010 season for the Field School comes to a close on October 31, but we’re already putting together an exciting schedule of courses for next year.
