The Heart of Tracking: Author Walk and Talk

Author Richard Vacha will be leading a discussion on the new book "The Heart of Tracking." Through a series of outings, Vacha traverses the prismatic experience of tracking and brings it to our level. Practical investigations of signs and tracks draw close to the lives of all the animals in his landscape, including bobcats, badgers, skunks, coyotes, and one particular vulture. We will have a walk and talk with the Vacha learning about the wildlife of Point Reyes National Seashore and what it is like to study them for a lifetime. Afterwards there will be a book signing, which will be purchasable, courtesy of our Nature Store. It will be an interactive day that gives you great insight into the world of tracking wildlife and embracing nature as a whole.
