About Trackers

Since 2004, kids and extended families in all their forms have journeyed on adventures with Trackers Earth and our Guides. We share the Arts of Tracking through stewardship and enduring outdoor skills.

We commit to developing opportunity by respecting the diverse cultures and values of every Guide, youth, and family serving with us.

We endeavor to grow with families for the increased accessibility of these experiences.

We define ourselves by an ever deeper kinship to the more than human world, multi-generational character, and the principles discovered and found in the quietest moments with the forest.
