Brian Booth is an animal tracking enthusiast & teacher, adventurer, and lover of wilderness & the outdoors. He currently resides in Washington, but has also lived in Connecticut, Idaho, California, Arizona, Illinois, Florida & Rhode Island, and has criss-crossed remote wilderness areas across the U.S. & Canada. He has trained with tracking experts Sue Morse, Tom Brown Jr., Jon Young, David Moskowitz, Paul Rezendes and John McCarter.

He assists running tracking workshops for Wilderness Awareness School in Duvall, WA, and is a team leader in the Cascades Citizens Wildlife Monitoring Project, a snow tracking project that is generating data for construction of a series of wildlife overpasses and underpasses on Interstate 90 near Snoqualmie Pass, a critical wildlife migration corridor in Washington’s Cascade Mountains. The project’s goal is to allow wildlife to safely migrate across the pass without attempting to enter the roadway, which up till now has been an all-too-common occurrence that is harmful to wildlife populations and hazardous to drivers as well.

Brian has served as an officer on the U.S. Navy submarine USS Drum, backpacked the 2,600-mile Pacific Crest Trail, is a contributing author to "Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills" (sometimes referred to as "The Bible" of mountaineering), and is a singer-songwriter with three full length CDs to his credit.

In addition to tracking and performing music, Brian also enjoys gathering wild edible plants & mushrooms, teaching CPR & first aid with the Red Cross, instructing mountaineering and mountaineering first aid, and works in the design of commercial airplanes at The Boeing Company.
