At Trackers Earth we offer adult programs in wilderness survival, archery, bow-making, blacksmithing, tracking, foraging wild edible plants, and more. Our weekend and evening Folk and Forest Craft courses build confidence and common sense in the outdoors. We teach authentic skills of independence and a life connected to community and the land, across all four of our Core Guilds.
