Mission and Vision Statement

It is our mission to ensure the survival of future generation by guiding youth and community to a pure connection 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.



  • 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.
