March 23rd's book will be The Secret Lives of Bats: My Adventures with the World's Most Misunderstood Mammals by Merlin Tuttle.
From menacing moonshiners and armed bandits to charging elephants and man-eating tigers, Merlin Tuttle has stopped at nothing to find and protect bats on every continent they inhabit. Enamored of bats ever since discovering a colony in a cave as a boy, Tuttle saw how effective photography could be in persuading people not to fear bats, and he has spent his career traveling the world to document them.
We'll meet April 27th to discuss The Mosquito: A Human History of Our Deadliest Predator by Timothy Winegard.
Why was gin and tonic the cocktail of choice for British colonists in India and Africa? What does Starbucks have to thank for its global domination? What has protected the lives of popes for millennia? Why did Scotland surrender its sovereignty to England? What was George Washington's secret weapon during the American Revolution?
The answer to all these questions, and many more, is the mosquito.
Check the calendar for upcoming dates and books that will be discussed.
Tracking Club is canceled through at least April 2021 due to the ongoing risk that COVID-19 poses to our region and community.
We hope you can join us when we are are able to resume!
The Tracking Club is an informal gathering where you can practice your tracking skills and learn from each other. It is a space for people to get together, learn and share knowledge, encourage each other along their journey, and have fun. Although not officially a Cascadia Wild event, we strongly support it and it is led by two of our knowledgeable Tracking Leaders.
