Welcome to COTEF, The Children of the Earth Foundation.

Our Mission:  To ensure the survival of future generations by guiding youth and community toward a pure connection with the Earth.

We offer Earth Skills programs for children and families through our Coyote Tracks Public Programs in the summer, and our Concentric Rings Outreach Programs for schools and other groups throughout the year.

The Children of the Earth Foundation (COTEF) is a non-denominational educational non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization.  It was created by Tom Brown, Jr. in 2001 as an opportunity to offer his Tracker School teachings to children and families.  We are committed to hands on learning activities through the ancient art and science of tracking, awareness, and wilderness living skills.

Real experience.  Lasting results.
A guided adventure through the forgotten arts of tracking, nature awareness, and wilderness survival living.
