Our morning adventure will focus on animal tracking, and we'll learn about scat, furs, skulls, prints and habitats as well as Leave No Trace principles. After lunch, we'll learn how to survive a night in the woods, including shelter construction and safety measures.
Weather at Mount Mitchell is difficult to predict, with summer highs only in the low 70s, so dress warmly with lots of layers. Bring a bag lunch and water and meet in the Summit Parking lot at 10:15 a.m Patches will be available for purchase at Mount Mitchell gift shop.
