Wolverine Tracking Project
Learn animal tracking while helping survey for rare carnivores on Mt Hood.
The Wolverine Tracking Project is a place for new and experienced trackers alike to strengthen their skills, get together with like minded people, and participate in a long-term survey to detect signs of rare forest carnivores. Snowshoe trips to the Mt Hood National Forest, lead by trained volunteers, take place all winter long.
Survey trips have two important goals: To teach animal tracking skills. And to search for evidence of the elusive wolverine, which nobody is sure still exist on Mt Hood, as well as other rare species.
The Wolverine Tracking Project is funded in part by a grant from the National Forest Foundation. www.nationalforests.org
Founded by Congress in 1991, the National Forest Foundation works to conserve, restore and enhance America's 193-million-acre National Forest System. Through community-based strategies and public-private partnerships, the NFF helps enhance wildlife habitat, revitalized wildfire-damaged landscapes, restores watersheds, and improves recreational resources for the benefit of all Americans.
