Description
4 Elements Earth Education provides programs that introduce Earth Skills—a blend of the ancient arts of tracking, wilderness survival, and nature awareness. Our curriculum and experienced instructors lead children, teens, and adults to read the landscape as stewards of the Earth. Through our programs, a re-thinking of our relationship to nature begins to occur: nature is not simply a resource that we control as a product, but a relationship we must cultivate.

On any given day at our Coyote Tracks Youth Programs, children are fully immersed in nature... identifying local animals and methods for tracking them; learning to build a shelter with forest debris; discovering local wild edibles; making a bow and arrow; learning about streams and the world within them; weaving from local plants; and learning to sit in the silence and to truly listen from the inside out.

Our Programs are inspired by Indigenous values and the old ways of Earth Skills, and are influenced by the Tracker School and each Instructor's own "dirt time" living these skills. Older children learn to use a knife safely and responsibly, and play games through natural terrain to heighten balance and situational awareness. Every session includes circle time and gratitude sharing.

Classes meet once per week. 4E staff and instructors follow all CDC, state and local guidelines regarding gatherings during the pandemic. We limit our small groups to 10 or fewer students; we sanitize tools/materials between uses; we encourage physical distancing and hand hygiene; and we wear and ask you to wear a face covering. Thank you for your understanding and for doing your part to keep our community well!



We offer three pricing levels in order to make our programs accessible to as many their families as possible. By selecting a price you can reasonably afford, you are helping to ensure financial resources are not a barrier to any anyone's participation. Thank you for your support!

Each registration includes a nonrefundable $10 fee. Cancellations received less than one week prior to the program start date are subject to a $50 cancellation fee. No refunds after the start date.
