Ok, WHAT’S A FOX TROT? Oh, just a super awesome outdoor nature book event where we get loud and wild and learn something new in the field.
It starts with a book reading and I’m gonna need you to participate—can you pounce like a fox? Scream like a fox? Hopefully we’ll perk up the ears of the local fox population, and hear them answer back. We’ll try out some owl calls too. Then we’ll set out on a FOX TROT to search for Secret Fox signs (dens, markings, dinner leftovers). We’ll learn to take sensory notes of our findings in sketches. Other possible sightings include white-tailed deer, owls, hawks, songbirds, rabbits, groundhogs, squirrels, chipmunks, caterpillars, butterflies, spiders, moths, and bats.
Can I bring something? Yes. Something to draw on (loose paper or a sketchbook) and something to draw with (a pencil, marker, or pen—nothing too fancy). Binoculars if you’ve got them, and if you’re really fancy, a magnifying glass.
How Much? Your $15 Registration Fee includes a signed and personalized copy of my new book, The Secret Life of the Red Fox. It’s a narrative non-fiction illustrated story about a year in the secret life of one fox. There’s a glossary and more trivia about foxes at the back. AND, you’ll get a limited edition RED FOX poster too! You’re not gonna get that from a dot com.
Already have a book? Then it’s $5 for Non-Members, $0 for Members. You’ll still get a poster.
