EF22 - Young Coyote Tracks Thursday AM (10a-1p)
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.
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.
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 requires a deposit, which includes a nonrefundable $20 registration fee. Cancellations received less than two weeks prior to the program start date forfeit the entire deposit. No refunds after the start date.
