Outdoor & Environmental Educator Training Program
Environmental education Trackers style is what I always felt like it should be. I get to be free and do real things with kids. I mean we've built a boat, blacksmithed, kids whittle with knives, David and Tony tracked a bear with my kids. Seriously, I learned from a-lot of places, this is the first place I really feel like I'm experiencing. -Laura Carson, Assistant Instructor

The Legend of the Ranger
The Rangers are hunters and scouts for the village. They are versed in the arts of wilderness survival, tracking and awareness. In their listening they find a silence, one that compels them to protect what is Wild.
Flow is the Way of the Ranger. They follow the trail of the cougar, deer and other animals. With finely honed senses they become the eyes and ears of the village, living completely with the land and tending to it as if an invisible ghost.
The Remembering is here. There was a time you forgot who you were, how it feels to release an arrow, the music of the bowstring resonating, the route of your blood, the path of those who came before.
You felt you were asleep for a long while. The world engined on. And then, one day, you woke up.
Core Studies Include...
Wilderness Survival & Primitive Skills Learn how to tend to your needs of shelter, water, fire and food while also tending to the land around you.
Animal Tracking See through the eyes of ancient tracker. Develop the ability to follow and find bear, bobcat, cougar and deer.
The Curriculum of Shadows: Nature Awareness and Stealth Take your nature awareness to the next level. Learn how both survival and tracking are actually be about flow. Plus, train to vanish like a frakking ninja.
