“Interpreting Wildlife Track and Sign” – Dwight Wilson
Dwight will share how his mentors taught him to identify and interpret track and sign. Learn how you can track wildlife through gathering information, asking questions, and problem solving. Dwight will share personal stories while introducing you to the tracks and sign of common wildlife here in north Texas.
Dwight was raised in rural southwest Missouri on a small farm where he learned to read animal tracks and sign at a young age. Dwight has been able to train with some of the top trackers in the nation including Tom Brown Jr., Charles Worsham and Nathan Kempton. He has applied his skills on research projects and for law enforcement. He currently lives in north Texas where he shares tracking and nature with people from all walks of life.
