Land Trust for Santa Barbara County

Author, artist, and expert tracker, Mike Kresky will share his experience to help us uncover some of the hidden messages in animal tracks.

Using “Field Guide to Animal Tracks and Scat of California” by Lawrence Mark Elbroch (Author), Michael Kresky (Author), Jonah Evans (Author), Kresky will cover some common questions such as: Why did the deer tracks disappear? Where did the cougar turn off the trail? What does it mean when two sets of footprints seem to coincide?

His illustrations include tracks and signs of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates like spiders and beetles found in California and the Santa Barbara region. Using science with field experience, Krseky provides an engaging presentation with useful tools for field identification and interpretation of how animals are moving through the world.

Free and open to the public. Space is limited. RSVP required – jstroh@sblandtrust.org
