Everyone knows that exercise is good for you, but sometimes it’s hard to get motivated. How many times can you walk the same trail before you get bored? Nevertheless, an important part of a healthy lifestyle is getting plenty of exercise, so what can you do to make it more interesting?

We’re lucky in North Central Washington: there’s plenty to see and a lot of beauty to take in. There’s also a lot of wildlife, and where they hang out changes depending on the seasons. Learning to track wildlife is one of many ways to make your walks more fun. It doesn’t matter how old you are or how fast you walk if you’re keeping an eye out for some of your furry or feathered neighbors: rabbits, wild turkeys, quail, raccoons, snakes.

The Wenatchee River Institute is offering a series of classes this spring on how to track wildlife. Each class can be purchased separately or as a package. At the very least, it’s a way to keep your back strong and relieve tension and stress!
