Custom Programs:

We can design a program to suit your particular audience and interest,

from easy one-hour walks to all-day excursions,

We also conduct in-depth indoor seminars on animal tracking,

and can travel to your location for evening slideshow presentations.

Our goal is to share the excitement and wonder we experience in the natural world. The programs are designed to provide students with wide and deep opportunities for nature exploration.

"Ultimately, tracking an animal makes us sensitive to it-- a bond is formed,an intimacy develops.
We begin to realize that what is happening to the animals and to the planet is actually happening to us. We are all one.
Tracking and reading sign help us to learn not only about the animals that walk in the forest -- what they are doing and where they are going -- but also about ourselves.
For me, this interconnection
is survival knowledge and the true value of tracking an animal."

- Paul Rezendes, Tracking and the Art of Seeing
