Approach

Our creative mentoring approach honors individuality, encourages self-sufficiency in learning, and awakens a kinship with nature. It trains youth to blend the awareness of a native tracker with the knowledge of a modern naturalist.  Our curriculum draws on traditions from indigenous cultures world-wide, emphasizing nature as teacher, and offering skills development, ecological knowledge, and awareness practices that inspire and empower students to continue their learning adventure beyond the program and into the landscape of their lives.
