About Grandfather - About Tom - Coyote Teaching - Our Vision - Staff & Board - Annual Reports

             Hands on learning activities through the ancient art and science of
                       tracking, awareness, and wilderness living skills.


Experiences that inspire excitement, adventure, creativity and a sense of awe into everyday life.
“Teaching a child to become a child of the Earth, where they can survive, where they can look at the mysteries of the Earth through the tracks, where their level of awareness is far superior to anyone around them; this is what we are trying to achieve. To awaken that excitement, that spirit in children.”  Tom Brown Jr.

Our Vision


It is our mission to ensure the survival of future generations by guiding youth and community toward a pure connectio
n with the Earth.

It is our vision that the arts of tracking and nature awareness through wilderness survival continue to live on into future generations. We recognize that the future of this Earth lies in the hands of the Children of the Earth. We will be a light on this path by bringing these skills and experiences to schools and programs everywhere.

Program Goals

  • Our goal is to create a profound respect for the Earth and all of its inhabitants.
  • We seek to support and nurture the personal growth and self-esteem of our participants through survival skills, animal tracking, nature awareness, storytelling, and performance.
  • Our teaching is infused with a philosophy of oneness with nature, as taught by Stalking Wolf to Tom Brown, Jr.
  • We hope to instill and awaken a deeper connection to the Earth as true caretakers, passionate about learning, and excited about becoming our future leaders-- as Children of the Earth.
