Wolverine Tracking Project Survey Trips
Survey trips take place mid-December through the end of March. Trips are led by two experienced winter trackers, so that you can experience the outdoors and further your understanding of nature in a safe group environment. Trip size is limited to 10 people.
Most trips are day long excursions that leave Portland at 8:30 AM, and return in the evening. We aim to be back in Portland by 7 pm at the latest. There are also a few overnight snow camping trips each year as well.
Trips go out almost every weekend, for a total of between 15 to 20 survey trips each winter. Most trips are on a Saturday, however there are some Sunday trips as well. Since tracking is very dependent on good snow conditions, trip location is not determined until the week of the trip. After you sign up for a trip, your trip leader will contact you earlier in the week with details. Trip leaders reserve the right to cancel trips in the case of dangerous winter storms or unusually bad tracking conditions.
