Valuable Benefits

Connect With Nature In Your Local Community

These days, it can feel like we have to trek out to the boonies and fork out a huge sum of money just to reconnect with our roots. But many of us can’t carve out the time, finances, or commitment for that. At Making Tracks, we believe everyone should have easy access to connection with nature. We’re committed to breaking down the barriers and bringing you and nature together. That’s why our affordable outdoor education utilizes the beautiful parks and nature areas located in and around urban locations.

What We Do

Making Tracks contracts the best Earth Educators available to bring a local and immersive education resource to our students. We are dedicated to enhancing your quality of life through survival skills and nature experiences. Making Tracks teaches people how to survive on any landscape without man-made tools by providing quality, affordable instruction that is interactive, educational, and fun for all ages.

We are a group of experienced mentors who all teach based on shared principals: the sit spot, survival skills, and wandering. We are a league of educators dedicated to mentoring students on how to take care of the land around them. Unlike most outdoor schools we do not host our own programs.

The 3 Pillars of Making Healthy Tracks

Sit Spot

Sit Spot

Remember how familiar you became with every little detail of your high school classroom, from the grooves in the desk to the exact tone of the clock’s ticking hands? That’s our aim with a sit spot. When we have a consistent homebase out in nature, we become finely tuned to the behaviors and patterns of the animals and land around us. It gives us the time and awareness to listen to the baseline and notice things we might otherwise miss, transforming us from tourists into an integrated part of the landscape.

Survival Skills

Survival Skills

This is everything you might expect, and so much more. Yes, making fire by friction, building shelter, creating arrowheads, and identifying plants and animals are key components of outdoor survival. But have you ever considered the importance of wide angle vision, or fox-walking, too? We make sure you’re equipped with every last tool to communicate with your surroundings and enhance your awareness.

Wandering

Wandering

We spend a lot of our day-to-day lives trying to get from A to B as efficiently as possible. What happens if we slow down, set off on our journey, and see where we end up? Wandering focuses on moving through a landscape without a sense of time or destination. Sauntering in this way builds focus and encourages a mindset of being in the here and now - something we could all use a lot more of. In a survival situation, the mindset of the wanderer can be the difference between life and death.
