A local organization teaches kids about tracking wildlife in the Pisgah National Forest.

The Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education leads a class of 8 to 15-year-olds as they learn how to identify the signs animals make in the wild.

The instructor of the class said it helps children understand and respect nature.

"Really, I hope that it changes their mentality when they get the opportunity just to be in the woods," education specialist Daniel Manget said. "That instead of just going for a recreational thing, they use a little more of their observation to be able to kind of see all the other things that enjoy these woods."

The class is one of the Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education's programs for the public. Visit ncwildlife.org to register for one of the free classes.
