Come snowshoe on Mt Hood and track rare carnivores

Cascadia Wild's Wolverine Tracking Project


Spend your days snowshoeing in the winter woods.  Learn how to read the tracks animals have left in the snow.  Carry out surveys for rare carnivores that the Forest Service can use when planning their management activities.  Join Cascadia Wild for the Wolverine Tracking Project. 


The Wolverine Tracking project provides a space where trackers of all skill levels can come together to strengthen their skills, while helping steward our National Forest by monitoring rare carnivores. Kids are welcome, and no experience is necessary.


New participants attend a two-part training, in order ensure that everyone has a solid background in animal tracking, knows how to dress properly for the snow, and knows what to expect when doing the surveys. Trainings take place in October, November, or December. The surveys to Mt Hood then take place December through March, and you may sign up for as many or as few survey trips as you like. Surveys are done in groups of up to 10 people, including two experienced trip leaders. Cost is $50 for new participants.  Family discounts are available.


If you don't want to commit to being a part of the entire project, training Sessions 1 may also be taken as a stand-alone class for $40, and will provide you with very good introduction to the art and science of animal tracking.
