Meet Lynn Levine, learn about animal tracks, & celebrate the publication of a new edition of Mammal Tracks & Scat.   Mammal Tracks is a life-size waterproof tracking guide that will help turn your tracking adventure into a magical experience.   This field guide is designed to be carried through brush, bramble & snow banks, & emerge unscathed.   By moving alongside a set of tracks, or finding scat, you can discover that the animal climbed a tree, found a mate, or marked its territory.   Levine is a consulting forester & an environmental educator focusing on the forest ecosystem.   She has been teaching tracking since 1988.   Levine is co-author of Working With Your Woodland.
