The Art of Tracking: Learning to See Patterns on a Landscape

Presentation by local biologist and tracker, Meghan Walla-Murphy

While tracking in the South African Kalahari Desert, Meghan learned the phrase "Kyk Mooi" which loosely translates "to look beautifully," or to see something as it is rather than what we want it to be. In her presentation, Meghan will share the discipline and mechanics of tracking while she delves into the Art of Seeing. Most people are astonished by what can be elucidated about animal behavior with these techniques. Meghan will also address tracking as a non-invasive way to research and conserve wildlife that leaves both observer and observed at peace.

This event will be held in conjunction with the Laguna Center's open house, which takes place from 10 am to 3 pm.
