Reading the Wild Stories of South Hill  CRN# 23725 -HNRS 23033     T   2:35 – 5:15 pm

Take a break from your busy schedule to spend a few hours outside each week enjoying some of the best weather Ithaca has to offer and discovering the natural wonders of our area. You’ll learn skills that you’ll carry with you for the rest of your life.

You’ve seen the deer—but did you know that our wild neighbors include bobcats, foxes, beaver, river otters, mink, and more?

In this class, we take a hands-on, experiential approach to learning to interpret the animal tracks and signs in our local woods, creeks, and wetlands. Yes, you can track—this class will show you how! Here is what some of this year’s students are saying about the class:

“Take a class that is different than lectures and PowerPoint slides and tests. There is no cooler way to get 1 credit hour than to walk around forests and streams and think about animals. I’ve learned so much cool stuff about animal behavior, animal anatomy, and how wildlife and humans interact.”

“This class helped me feel connected to the nature around me! I learned so much about the ways in which the animals behave and why.”

“I can now go outside, and on any given day see stories that the animals have left.”

“You get to look at the world from a new viewpoint and understand what tracking is, both as a skill, a tradition, and as a human instinct on a primal level.”
