About Children of the Earth Foundation

In a safe and creative environment,
we teach skills that will
last a lifetime.

School taught me how to read; Stalking Wolf
taught me how to learn.

– Tom Brown, Jr. –

The Children of the Earth Foundation (COTEF) is an 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. Tom was taught these and many more skills by his mentor, Stalking Wolf, an Apache Elder.

We are committed to hands-on learning activities through the ancient art and science of tracking, awareness, and wilderness living skills.

A wonderful group of individuals make up the Children of the Earth Foundation team. We are dedicated to making our programs the best that they can be.
